Pumpkin & Almond Pilau (Rice)



Heat the oil in a saucepan until hot but not smoking.
Add everything except the rice and stock and stir-fry over moderate heat, without browning, until the onion is soft.
Add the rice and mix well.
Add the stock, mix well and bring to the boil.
Cover tightly, turn the heat to the lowest setting (or if your stove is electric, put a heat-diffusing mat under the saucepan and turn the heat to low) and cook 25 minutes.
Do not uncover for any reason during this time.
Uncover and gently mix well so that everything is evenly distributed.
Pile the pilau onto a serving dish and scatter extra roasted almonds on top.
