   Cook rice in 6 cups of boiling water with salt and
   saffron until half done, about 10 minutes.  Drain.
   Boil the sugar with 3-3/4 cups water for one minute,
   stirring until sugar is dissolved. Heat butter in
   bottom of heavy 4 quart Dutch oven or kettle. Add the
   cardomen and cloves and cook over low heat 10 minutes.
   Add all but 1/2 cup of syrup; boil one minute. Add
   rice to mixture, and cook stirring gently until the
   butter is absorbed, about 10 minutes.  Add lemon
   juice, raisins, nuts. Cook over fairly high heat 5
   minutes.  Lower heat; cook until rice is tender,
   stirring when necessary. If the rice is not quite
   tender when the syrup has been absorbed, add the
   remaining syrup and cook over low heat until the rice
   is dry and soft. Remove the mixture from the heat and
   let stand, covered 10 minutes. Serve warm with whipped
   cream. Serves 12. Submitted By Z@FYBITS.COM (Z
