  1. Heat the ghee in a heavy-bottomed medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion, ginger, garlic, cloves, cardamom pods and cinnamon stick and sauté for 5 minutes. Stir in the rice and turmeric and continue to sauté for about 3 minutes, or until the rice is shiny.
  2. Raise the heat and add the water, coconut milk and salt. Bring to a boil. Immediately reduce the heat to low and cover the saucepan. Cook for 10 minutes; then stir in the raisins and apricots. Cover again and cook, without lifting the lid, for 10 more minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and, without lifting the lid, allow the rice to steam for 5 minutes. Remove the lid and stir in the pine nuts. Remove the whole spices if you wish before serving.
