   *Make certain you use a pot marigold (Calendula) rather than an African
   marigold (Tagetes) Cook the rice in boiling, salted water for 15-20
   minutes, or until just tender; it should still be a little chewy. Heat 1
   tbsp oil in a frying pan, put in the onions and fry quickly for 2 minutes.
   Add the apricots, pistachios, pine kernels, sprinkling them with cinnamon
   as they cook. Using a slotted spoon, remove the mixture from the pan and
   stir into the rice. Cover and keep warm. Heat the remaining oil, put in the
   chicken strips and fry quickly, sprinkling with a little more cinnamon. Do
   not overcook the chicken, which should be tender and juicy. Mix the cooked
   chicken into the rice, season if necessary and spread the mixture in a wide
   shallow dish. Sprinkle with rose water and decorate with the rose and
   marigold petals. Serve at once.
