Taking first the sugar, vinegar and salt, gently stir them in a pan.
Now add the cloves, apple and raisin. Next heat the mixture slowly, stirring more frequently, and cook it for about 30 minutes or until it thickens. Allow to cool a little. Meanwhile, gently heat oil in large saucepan. Add the rice and stir for about 1 minute, seasoning with salt and pepper. Then pour in the water, put the lid on, and bring to a boil. Now turn down the heat and simmer the rice for 20 minutes or until it is cooked as you like. When this done, turn the rice into a dish and spoon the chutney over it, scattering the cashew nuts on top before serving.
