   Here’s another, similar, recipe that’s a bit more elaborate.  Made it
   once and it was quite good.  I usually make the other as it’s more
   simple. The Nasi Kuning is more of a side dish while this makes a
   pretty satisfying meal.
   
   Heat the oil in a 1 1/2-quart saucepan over medium-high heat until
   hot. Add the rice and stir until it begins to brown, now add the
   cloves, cinnamon, turmeric and pepper; stir for a minute or so.  Pour
   in the broth, add the salam or bay leaf and cumin.  Bring to a rapid
   boil then cover and reduce the heat to a very low simmer.  Simmer for
   about 40 minutes. Stir in the chicken and raisins; cover again and
   let sit, off the stove, for a few minutes before serving.  Garnish
   with egg and tomato slices and the Onion Flakes.
   
   This is the basic Recipe.  For variety try a teaspoon of ground chili
   instead of the black pepper.  Other meats could be substituted for the
   chicken.  Indonesian Crisp Beef is quite good with this, using it as a
   garnish instead of mixing in with the rice.  Try anything you like,
   but don't put anything in to cook along with the rice, it might upset
   the liquid ratio and spoil things.  The rice should come out with the
   grains separate and no stickiness.
