Actually 4 1/2 stars. I was skeptical, but this is really good and I would have given it 5 stars but fora few things. The method of cooking the rice and adding the ingredients doesn't really work. Use your usual method, add the saffron to the water and let it cook together with the rice then add the rest of your flavorings as soon as you determine all the water is absorbed, stir it all in, cover tightly and allow to rest for five minutes or so. There is enough heat and residual moisture. I cut the sugar to 2 tbs. And last, fishing for the cloves is a nuisance, I just used 1/4 tsp ground cloves and left out the whole. I just wish I knew if this is meant to be a sweetish side dish or a very mildly sweet dessert. Either way, it is very tasty!
