White rice is cooked “pilaf-style” with sautéed shallots and a hint of turmeric (which lends earthy flavor and a vibrant yellow color) until tender and fluffy. During the last few minutes of cooking, chopped pecans and dried fruits are stirred in to gently plump and flavor the rice.

1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 cup finely chopped shallot
1 1/2 teaspoons dried turmeric or 1 tablespoon fresh turmeric, finely grated
2 cups water, vegetable broth, or chicken broth
1 tablespoon coarse kosher salt, more to taste
1/4 cup diced dried apricots
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup chopped toasted pecans

Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
