Moroccan Basmati Pilaf

Moroccan Basmati Pilaf
  • 2 cups basmati rice
  • 1 diced small onion
  • 2 crushed garlic cloves
  • 1/2 tbs curry powder
  • 1/4 cup garam masala
  • 1 1/4 cup vegetable stock
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/3 cup toasted pine nuts
  • 1/2 cup garden peas
  • 1/4 cup chopped scallions
  • salt and pepper to taste

Saute onions and garlic for 5 minutes. Add curry and garam masala and cook for 2 minutes. Add rice and stir for 3 minutes and add stock. Bring to a boil and lower your heat until rice is cooked, about 25 minutes. Fold in the rest of the ingredients and serve warm. I sometimes add cilantro, ginger or golden raisins.
