A popular Indian rice dish. Ingredient tip: Also known as hato mugi, Job's tears—a healthy, gluten-free grain—is available in some health food stores and Asian markets.
Recipe Ingredient Details:
1 cup brown basmati rice
1 cup Job's tears, or 1 more cup brown rice
3 tablespoons ghee or avocado oil, or a mixture
1 tablespoons cumin seeds
10 whole cloves
5 cardamom pods
2 bay leaves
1 cinnamon stick
4 cups water
2 cups frozen vegetable medley (corn, carrots, peas), not thawed
1/4-1/2 cup raisins
pinch of salt (optional)
additional ghee (optional )
Wash rice and Job's tears in a strainer; set aside.
Heat ghee or oil in a large pot or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add spices. Stir a few minutes, being careful not to burn spices. Add rice and Job's tears, and stir about 8 minutes.
Carefully add water to rice mix (it will pop and splash). Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium, cover, and cook for 45-55 minutes.
Add frozen vegetables to rice and stir on medium-low heat. Stir in raisins and add a bit of salt and ghee, if desired. Remove large spices before serving.
