  1. Using a strainer, rinse the rice multiple times, until the water coming from it is clear, set to the side to drain.
  2. Prepare a medium sized pot on high heat. Add 1/4 cup of olive oil and get hot. Add the onions and let cook for 10 minutes, mixing often.
  3. Add the remaining olive oil and get hot. Add the rice. Let cook for 4 minutes, mixing often.
  4. Add the salt, tea bag, pistachios and craisons and 1 1/2 cups of water. Turn down to simmer and cover tightly and let cook 15 minutes. Turn off flame and let sit for a few minutes before fluffing.
Notes & Tips:

If you live in Israel you can buy really amazing rice spice mixes and use 1 cup of them instead of the teabag, craisons and pistachios.
