Melt the butter and add the rice; brown it well without scorching it. Add the cardamom seeds, cloves, raisins, almonds, sugar, mace, salt and saffron. Stir in the pan for 1 minute. Cover with water, add the cinnamon and bring to a boil. Boil for 1 minute, then lower the heat to simmer very gently in the saucepan, covered. Cook until the rice is tender, adding water a little at a time should the liquid become absorbed before the rice is cooked. From How To Make Good Curries by Helen Lawson Copyright 1973
