Yellow Rice with Raisins

This tasty rice recipe comes from South Africa. This is very different from the rice you are probably accustomed to eating. The turmeric gives it a bright yellow color and helps to create a delightful exotic flavor. The raisins and cinnamon gives it a touch of sweetness even without the sugar that I usually leave out. If you want to give your taste buds a treat give this a try next time you make rice.

The directions are for stove top but I normally put everything in the rice cooker and everything comes out great with less effort.
