2 Oranges
4 tbsp Butter
2 cups Sugar
20-25 Almonds
½ cup Orange juice
2 cups Basmati rice

For the caramel:

½ cup Sugar

Wash and soak rice for 30 minutes. Drain and then put to boil in 2 cups of water, to have it half cooked.
Boil sugar in 1½ cups of water for 5 minutes. Add rice followed by orange juice and mix gently. Cover and cook until rice becomes tender.
Peel oranges and cut the rind into thin strips. Sauté these slightly in butter and mix into the rice.
Peel the thin skin off the orange segments and mix the segments into the rice, reserving a few for decoration.
Caramelise sugar over medium flame and add almonds. Pour onto a greased steel plate to allow to set. Once set, crush it coarsely.
Serve the orange rice hot, decorated with the orange segments and caramelised almonds.

Tip: Before cooking rice, if you soak it in water with two teaspoons of salt, it will increase its whiteness and prevent the rice from breaking.
