My sister Tova got this recipe from her friend Bella Alroy. Tova then combined this recipe with a tip from her brother in law, Yankel Kagan. He told her that when making rice add some honey to it after it has been cooked for the ultimate flavor.
1 onion, chopped
1 carrot, grated
1 red bell pepper, sliced length wise into strips
2 cups of basmati rice and 4 cups of water
Put the veggies in a 9×13 pan with the rice. Mix in spices (salt, pepper & garlic)
Add the water along with 3 tablespoons of oil (after you have added it do not mix the ingredients in the pan together) cover with foil and bake on 350 for an hour and a half. Once the rice has been cooked, drizzle in some honey and mix then serve.
