1 small white onion sliced
2 Cinnamon Sticks(or powder)
6 (crushed pods, remove casing) Cardamom
5 cups water (and salt to taste) OR vegetable broth
1 diced mango 4-6 diced and pitted apricots
1 tsp Turmeric
1 cup sliced mushroom, if desired Shaved coconut, if desired
When aromatic, add onion and stir well. When onion is mostly tranclucent, add rice and vegetable broth.
Bring to a boil. When boiling, reduce to medium/low heat to keep a strong simmer.
Add turmeric (and salt if you used water).
Simmer for 20 minutes, ensuring you have enough liquid at all times.
When liquid is mostly absorbed, add fruit and mushroom (Most mushroom is a GREAT vitamin D!). Stir well.
Cover with roasted or raw sliced almonds. If you need to, you can toast/roast your almonds either in a dry heavy pan for 2-3 minutes or in your oven at 425 for 4 minutes.
