Barberries are rare, tasteful, and healthy. They're very tiny red berries that are sold in dried form. Because these berries are tart, they need a little sugar to balance the taste.
- 1½ cups dried barberries (rinsed)
- 3 cups basmati rice
- 1 pinch of saffron
- 4 teaspoons superfine sugar
- 1 salt
- 1 pepper
- 4 tablespoons vegetable oil
