Roasted Rice with Dates, Cinnamon and Cardamom
This is a decadent dish to serve your loved one on a sweet evening in! Lovely as a side dish for Mediterranean lamb dishes, any number of vegetables, or even as a sweet dessert, you can’t pass this recipe up!
In Ayurveda, the word for juicy, sensual vitality is “ojas.” Some special foods have lots of ojas, and, as it happens, you can eat them if you feel the need to increase your sense of vitality and juiciness. (There are probably not many people who don’t yearn for that sweet sensuality in life.) In the ancient texts of Ayurveda, Ojas is said to have the smell of toasted rice. The main two ingredients in this recipe, dates and rice, increase ojas in your body, thereby giving you a healthy, happy glow.
Roasted Rice with Dates, Cinnamon and Cardamom is very easy to digest. It’s even perfect for those who are recovering from illnesses or suffering from weak digestion. Sometimes, feeling rundown leaves us feeling sad – this recipe is the remedy for both! The soft, soothing nature of rice and dates will calm your belly and help you feel strong and stable.
- 1 cup Basmati Rice
- 1/4 tsp Black Pepper
- 1/4 tsp Cardamom
- 1/4 tsp Cinnamon
- 4 whole Dates (dried)
- 1 tbsp Ghee
- 2 pinches Salt (Mineral Salt is best)
- 3 cups Water
Chop dates. Heat a medium saucepan on low, and add ghee. When it melts, add uncooked rice. Stir continually for 2-5 minutes, until it smells sweet and all the rice is coated with ghee. Add the spices and dates. Stir for one more minute. Add water and bring to a boil. Cover pot and lower to a simmer. Cook until rice is tender about twenty minutes.
