  • Meanwhile, in a medium skillet, heat the oil over medium. Add the nuts. Cook, stirring often, until lightly toasted, about 3 minutes. Add the raisins. Cook until the raisins are heated through and the nuts are golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes more. Remove the whole spices from the rice. 

  • Fluff the rice with a fork and transfer to a bowl. Top with the nuts and raisins.
