2 tbsp canola oil
1 cup basmati rice
1 + 3/4 cups water
1 cups chopped almonds
1/2 cup rasins
1 tbsp 7 spice
1 tsp salt
1/2 cinnamon stick
1 tsp cumin
3 cardamom pods, opened
2-3 cloves garlic, crushed (can never have too much!)
In a large pot, fry chopped onions until golden in 1 tbsp canola oil. Add chopped chicken breasts with spices. Let cook until white & almost complete cooked through. Then, add the cup of rice, mix together & add the water.
Bring it to a boil for a few seconds, stir, turn on low heat and cover. Let cook for about 20-30 minutes.
While the rice cooks, heat 1 tbsp of canola oil in a frying pan, add chopped almonds & fry, stirring often so that they don’t burn! Remove form heat once browned & warm the raisins. set aside.
Once rice is done, fluff with a fork.
