       Title: SAVORY FRIED RICE
  Categories: Main dish, Vegetables
       Yield: 6 servings
  
   1 1/2 c  Long grain rice
       6    Whole cloves
       3    Whole black peppers
     1/4 ts Turmeric
     1/2 ts Salt
   2 1/2 c  Water
     1/2 ts Ground cardamom
       2    Leeks (small)
       2 tb Margarine
       1    Carrot (medium), shredded
       1 c  Frozen peas, thawed
     1/4 c  Cashews
     1/4 c  Raisins
  
   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):  9 g protein, 49 g
   carbohydrate, 138mg cholesterol, 321 calories.
   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.
