Bud's Special Rice for Special Company

42 mins (prep 20, cooking 22)
9 ingredients
4-6 servings
This Middle Eastern-flavored rice was a delicious accompaniment to Bud's " Distract the Neighbors " Grilled Chicken. From the book The Language of Baklava (page 29) by Diana Abu-Jaber. I made only a few very minor changes as indicated below. For the test recipe, the recipe was cut in half. I'm not positive, but I think this is a Jordanian recipe.
