Sweet Rice Pilaf


This recipe is a healthy makeover of an Indian dessert, where I have replaced food color with grated carrot or sweet potato shavings. Please note, if desired the syrup can be added with the water into a rice cooker and the rest of the dish can be completed in the rice cooker.

What you will need

1 large sweet potato or two medium carrots

1 cup dark maple syrup

3/4 cup white rice (basmati or an Indian short grain variety)

1 teaspoon saffron strands

few piece cinnamon (1 large stick broken)

3 green cardamoms

1/3 cup chopped pecans

1/3 cup cashew nuts

1/3 cup dark raisins
