       Yield: 6 servings
  
       3 tb Vegetable oil or ghee
       1 c  Diced celery
       1 ts Asafetida
       1 tb Ginger, grated
     1/4 ts Chili seeds
       1 ts Cumin seeds
       1 ts Garam masala
       3 c  Long grain brown rice
   4 1/2 c  Water

     1/4 c  Raisins
     1/8 c  Cashews, toasted
     1/8 c  Peanuts, toasted
     1/8 c  Sliced almonds, toasted
     1/8 c  Sesame seeds, toasted
  
   Saute first 3 ingredients together till celery and/or onion turns
   translucent.  Add the next 4 ingredients and fry till spices begin to
   turn brown and you can smell them in the air.  Add the rice and
   stir-fry till it begins to turn golden brown.  Then add the next 3
   ingredients, mix well with spoon and bring to a boil.  Cover and turn
   heat down to medium-low so it maintains a gentle roiling boil for 10
   to 15 minutes. Turn down and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes.  Garnish
   with nuts and seeds before serving. Makes 6 to 8 servings.
