A popular Indian rice dish. Also known as hato mugi, Job's tears—a healthy, gluten-free grain—is available in some health food stores and Asian markets.

  1. Wash rice and Job's tears in a strainer; set aside.
  2. Heat oil or ghee 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Add frozen vegetables to rice and stir on medium-low heat. Stir in raisins and add a bit of salt and oil or ghee, if desired. Remove large spices before serving.
