Golden Currant Pilaf with Cinnamon

Número de Porciones: 6

Tamaño de la porción: 1/2 cup

This aromatic side dish is especially good when made with basmati rice, a fragrant rice that has a slightly nutty flavor and rich aroma. Turmeric, with its bitter,pungent taste and intense yellow-orange color is very popular in East Indian cooking. If you don't have dried currants on hand, you can use raisins or chopped dried apricots instead.

Saute the onion in the oil in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat until tender, about 5 minutes. Add the rice; cook 1 minute. Stir in the broth, currants, turmeric, cinnamon, and salt.


Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat; cover and simmer until most of the liquid is absorbed, about 20 minutes. Remove from the heat; let stand, covered, 5 minutes. Stir in the parsley.
