Indian Sweet Saffron Rice With Raisins and Pistachios
30 mins (prep 10, cooking 20)
13 ingredients
4-5 servings
A Vedic recipe (meetha kesari bhat) adapted from the cookbook The Best of Lord Krishna's Cuisine by Yamuna Devi. Although not considered Vedic, I add onion to the rice. Very sweet dish meant to be served to soothe the palate when eating more fiery Indian dishes. The sweetener jaggery or gur can be found in many Asian markets.
