1 ounce Corn oil margarine
1¼ cup Coarsely ground wheat (bulgar)
1 tablespoon Fennel seeds
¼ cup Golden raisins, seedless
2¼ cup Nonfat milk
¼ cup Nonfat dry milk powder
½ cup Sugar (reduce if preferred)
1 pinch Saffron
¼ teaspoon Yellow food color
½ teaspoon Cardamoms, crushed
½ teaspoon Nutmeg, grated
2 tablespoons Almonds, finely sliced

1. In a saucepan, heat margarine and saute wheat and fellen seeds, stirring frequently, until the wheat is light golden brown; about 10 to 15 minutes. Add raisins and cook until the raisins are swollen.

Remove saucepan from heat.

2. Carefully add nonfat milk, nonfat milk powder, sugar, saffron, and yellow food color. Stir well, and bring to boil.

3. Reduce heat slightly, cover and cook until almost all the liquid has been absorbed.

(Ass a little water if too dry.) 5. Garnish with almonds and serve.
