A sweet and savory Afghanistan dish.
Soak dry TVP in 2 cups water for 15 min. or longer. Cut carrots in half.
Slice each half lengthwise, thinly. Heat oil in a wide, low pot with a tight-fitting lid and sauté thinly slice onions until brown. Add TVP and brown further, for one minute. Add all spices and stir.
Add a ½ cup water. Simmer for 5 minutes.
Add carrots, currants, rice and salt. Add enough water to cover the entire mixture (about 3-½ cups). The water level should be 1 inch higher than the rice.
Bring to a boil, then simmer on low heat, for 20 minutes with the lid closed tightly. When cooked, rice should separate and fluff.
Serve with salad, etc.
