iraqui rice
from farha ghannam, swarthmore professor

regular rice (medium grain)
1 onion
some whole walnuts
sliced almonds
allspice, cinnamon, salt, and pepper
dice onion into small pieces, sauté in olive oil, and add some of all the spices. add walnuts, almonds, and raisins. put in uncooked rice and more spices, then add water (2 cups for every 1 cup of rice), and stir while cooking.

this was brought back to my as leftovers and is great as a cold snack, but much better hot, of course. try substituting craisins (dried cranberries), though then it'd be "new jersey pine barrens rice".
