Wash the rice till water runs clear, soak for 15-20 minutes in cold water and drain it.
Heat the ghee in a pan. Lower the heat and add green cardamom, cloves, bay leaves and cinnamon. When they start to sizzle, add the cashews (and raisins, if using). Fry on low flame till the cashews turn light golden brown on each side – be careful, so that the cashews don’t burn. Add in the ginger, turmeric and fry for another 10 –15 seconds. Add in the drained out rice. Gently mix everything so that the rice gets nicely coated with ghee – do the mixing gently so that the rice grains don’t break up. Still on low flame, fry the rice for 2-3 minutes – though, don’t let the rice color. Add in the water now and increase the heat. Add salt. Give a final stir. Once the water comes to a boil, cover with a tight fighting lid and lower the heat. Let it cook till all the water evaporates and rice is cooked. Lightly fluff up the rice with a fork. Cover the mouth of the pan with a thick kitchen towel and put the lid back on. Remove the lid and towel after 10 minutes and then offer to the Lord. After eat remnants of the food offered (prasadam).
