3) Now, add raisins and toss them so that they are coated with butter. Put in rice and 1/2 teaspoon of salt, if desired.
4) Lower the pan heat to medium-low and stir fry the rice for about 30 seconds, until coated with butter. Don't allow the rice to brown.
5) Pour in about 1 1/2 cups of water and stir well. Raise the heat to high and boil the rice once.
