Fruited Basmati Rice

low fat, side dish, rice

2 1/2 cups uncooked basmati rice
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 orange
5 slices ginger root; chopped
1/4 cup golden raisins
1/2 cup dried apricots; chopped
1/2 teaspoon cumin seed
1/4 cup slivered almonds

Place the rice into a pan and rinse it with water to remove milky coating (until water runs clear). Bring to a boil in ample water. Reduce heat to very low, cover the pan and simmer. Grate the peel from 1/2 an orange. Add to the simmering rice. Peel the ginger root, cut 5 slices, chop and stir them into the rice. Add the raisins and dried chopped apricots. Sprinkle the rice mixture with cumin. Cover and cook for a total of 30 minutes. Just before serving, toast the almonds in a heavy sauté pan until fragrant and light brown. Top each serving of rice with toasted almonds. This recipe yields 8 generous servings. Comments: This is an excellent main course dish served with thin slices of grilled chicken or chunks of grilled fish.
