Scented Rice

1 cup rice

1.5 cups water

1 tsp. salt

4 whole cardamom pods

4 whole cloves

1 tsp turmeric

1/2 raisins (optional)


Scented rice is served with chicken curry.  Mix all ingredients in a pot deep enough so the rice does not boil over.  Bring to a boil then reduce heat to low for 15 minutes or until the water has evaporated.  Remove from the heat and allow the rice to sit for about 5 minutes.  Use a fork to fluff the rice.  Remove the cardamom pods and cloves before serving.
