Ingredients

  • 2 cups long grain rice
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 4 cups coconut milk
  • 4 cups sugar
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1/3 teaspoon saffron, steeped in 2 tablespoons hot water
  • 2 tablespoons rose water
  • 1/2 cup pistachios, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup candied orange peel

Directions

Soak the rice in 2 cups water for 1 hour. Drain and pour the rice into a food processor. Grind until broken up but not powdered. Pour into a pot with 4 cups water and add the oil. Bring to a boil and cook 20 minutes, stirring continuously.

Mix 3 cups water, 2 cups coconut milk and the sugar in a bowl. Let stand to dissolve, 20 minutes.

Incorporate the sugar mixture and half the butter to the rice, stirring over medium heat. After 5 minutes, add the remaining 2 cups coconut milk, the remaining butter, the saffron and rose water. Simmer until the rice is cooked and has a thick consistency, 15 more minutes. Remove from the heat and pour into a serving bowl, stirring to cool. Place in the refrigerator for 4 hours to set. Garnish with pistachios and candied orange peel.
