  • 10 cloves

  • 2 eetlepels raw sugar

  • 2 onions

  • Let the rice soak briefly in plenty of water.
    Meanwhile, finely chop the onions.
    Peel the oranges thinly.
    Fill a pan with 850 ml of water, add the orange peel and the sugar. Bring the water to a boil.
    Gently fry onions in a heavy-bottomed pan. Add the cardamom seeds and cloves. Drain the rice and put it in the pan with the onions. Then add the boiling water with the orange peels as well. Stir well and let the rice cook for about 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile cut the oranges into small pieces.
    Fry the cashew nuts and almonds in a pan with a little butter.

    So thrilled to find this website, totally by accident, because we share the same unusual first name!
    I am looking forward to trying some of your recipes. Would you be able to post this “oranges rice” one in English?
    Thank you so much.

      Hi Damaris 😉 – funny that you stumbled upon me with a similar name. And thank you, because this recipe should have been in English a long time ago. And I never knew I totally forgot to translate it. Whilst this is one of my favorites. Anyway, enjoy making it, serving it and eating it. See you back soon?
