Crispy-Bottomed Yellow Rice

Aired June 30, 2009

Serves 4 servings
2 cups chicken stock
2 pinches saffron threads
1 1/2 teaspoons ground turmeric
1/4 cup (about a handful) golden raisins
1 tablespoon butter
1 cup white rice
1/4 cup chopped dry Marcona almonds, for garnish

In a medium-size nonstick pot, bring the chicken stock, saffron, turmeric, raisins and butter up to a bubble. Add the rice to the pot, reduce the heat to low and cover.

Cook, stirring occasionally, until the rice has absorbed the liquid, about 15 minutes. Remove the lid from the pot, raise the heat to medium and cook the rice until the bottom is light golden brown and crispy, about 5 minutes.

Serve the rice topped garnished with Marcona almonds alongside Crispy Potato and Ham-Wrapped Cod.
