How to Make It

Step 1    

In a medium saucepan, combine the water with the rice, cardamom, cinnamon stick, tangerine zest, salt and turmeric. Stir well and bring to a boil. Cover and cook over very low heat until the liquid is absorbed and the rice is tender, 15 to 17 minutes.

Step 2    

Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, melt the butter over moderate heat. Add the almonds and cook, stirring, until golden, about 2 minutes. Stir in the raisins and sugar and remove from the heat. Add the rice to the mixture and stir gently to combine. Transfer to a bowl and serve.
