Bahraini chicken with spiced rice

Wash rice in cold water; soak for about one hour. Cut chicken into eight pieces. In a large skillet, heat vegetable oil and cook chicken until golden in color. Drain on paper towels; set aside. Sauté onion in vegetable oil until golden, stirring frequently. Add garlic, chili and ginger. Mix well; cook mixture for about one minute. Add the spices and tomato. Cover and simmer for about five minutes.


In a cooking pot, boil one quart of water; set aside. Drain the rice and add it to the onion and spice mixture, stirring well. Add just enough boiling water to cover the rice. Cover skillet; simmer on low until rice is fully cooked, about twenty minutes. Sprinkle top with raisins as a garnish if desired. Serve.
