Rice Pilaf with Lime & Cashews

60 mins (prep 30)
13 ingredients
6 servings, about 1/2 cup each
In southern India, this fragrant dish is served during the harvest season. We've made it the traditional way using white rice (though brown rice is nutritionally superior, it is rarely used in India because the oils in the bran cause it to deteriorate faster, reducing its shelf life). If you are committed to eating only whole grains, you can use brown basmati rice (see Variation).
