    1 1/4   c            Coarsely ground wheat
                         -(bulgar)
    1       tb           Fennel seeds
      1/4   c            Golden raisins, seedless
    2 1/4   c            Nonfat milk
      1/4   c            Nonfat dry milk powder
      1/2   c            Sugar (reduce if preferred)
    1       pn           Saffron
      1/4   ts           Yellow food color

   1.  In a saucepan, heat margarine and saute wheat and
   fellen seeds, stirring frequently, until the wheat is
   light golden brown; about 10 to 15 minutes.  Add
   raisins and cook until the raisins are swollen. Remove
   saucepan from heat.
   
   2.  Carefully add nonfat milk, nonfat milk powder,
   sugar, saffron, and yellow food color.  Stir well, and
   bring to boil.
   
   3.  Reduce heat slightly, cover and cook until almost
   all the liquid has been absorbed.
   
   4.  Add cardamoms, nutmeg, and fold in.  Cover and
   cook on a very low heat for 20 minutes or until the
   wheat is cooked but still moist. (Add a little water
   if too dry.)
   
   5.  Garnish with almonds and serve.
