Madhuri.Dixit's picture
Ingredients
  Basmati rice 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Olive oil 1 Tablespoon
  Corn oil 1 1⁄4 Tablespoon (More For Greasing The Moulds)
  Black cardamom pods 2
  Black cumin seeds 1⁄2 Teaspoon (1 Large Pinch)
  Black peppercorns 6
  Cloves 2
  Salt To Taste
  Saffron threads 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Sultanas 2 Tablespoon
  Flaked almonds 1 Tablespoon
Directions

1. Rinse the rice thoroughly until the water runs clear. Leave it to soak in fresh water while preparing the rest of the ingredients.
2. In a large heavy-based saucepan, heat the oils together over moderate heat for about 30 seconds, then add the cardamom pods, cumin seeds, peppercorns, cloves and salt to taste. Lower the heat and stir.
3. Drain the rice, add to the pan and stir gently. Add the saffron, sultanas, almonds and 3 cups of water. Bring to the boil, lower the heat, cover and cook for 10-15 minutes, until the water is fully absorbed and the rice is tender. Let stand, off the heat, still covered, for 5-7 minutes.
4. While the rice is cooking, preheat the oven to 190°C/375°F/gas 5 and lightly grease 4 ramekins with corn oil. Press the rice into them and warm through in the oven for about 5-10 minutes.
