 Whole cloves
 Whole black peppers
 1/2 c Water
 Leeks (small)
 tb Margarine
1/4 c
 Cashews
1/4 c
 Raisins
1/4 
 ts Turmeric
1/2 
 ts Salt
1/2 
 ts Ground cardamom
1 c
 Frozen peas, thawed
 1/2 c Long grain rice
 Carrot (medium), shredded



Instructions:

Place rice, cloves, black peppers, turmeric, salt, cardamom, and water in a 2-qt. pan. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer about 20 minutes until the rice is tender and the liquid is absorbed. Remove cloves and black peppers (or be prepared to warn your guests to watch out for them while eating). While rice is cooking, wash and trim leeks. Cut crosswise
in 1/2" thick slices, using the tender parts of the green tops as well as the white. Separate into rings. Melt margarine in a wide frying pan. Add leeks and shredded carrot and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes. Add peas, cashews and raisins and cook for 3 minutes. When rice is cooked, stir in leek mixture. Turn onto a serving platter and garnish with slices of 3 hard-cooked egg and parsley if desired. Per serving, including eggs (which I don't use):
Notes: I leave out the eggs and steam the leeks and carrots in the microwave, thus cutting out most of the fat and all of the
cholesterol.
