Spiced Lamb-and-Rice Dressing with Chickpeas Recipe

1 ½ Tbl unsalted butter
1 onion, finely chopped
1 lb ground lamb
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground cardamom
1/4 tsp ground allspice
1 ½ C white basmati rice
2 C chickpeas, drained
Kosher salt
Freshly ground pepper
1 C turkey stock or low-sodium chicken broth
1 C water
1 Tbl extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 C pine nuts

1. In a large saucepan, melt the butter. Add the onion and cook over medium heat until softened, about 4 minutes. Add the lamb, garlic, cinnamon, cardamom, and allspice. Cook, stirring, until the lamb is no longer pink and the liquid has evaporated, about 4 minutes. Add the rice and chickpeas along with 2 teaspoons of salt and a pinch of pepper and cook, stirring, until evenly coated. Add the stock and water and bring to a boil. Cover and cook over low heat until the rice is tender, about 20 minutes. Remove from the heat, cover and let stand for 10 minutes.
2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a small skillet. Add the pine nuts and cook over moderate heat, stirring constantly, until browned, about 4 minutes. Transfer the pine nuts to a plate and season with salt.
3. Fluff the rice and transfer it to a bowl. Sprinkle the toasted pine nuts over the dressing and serve.

Basmati rice is indigenous to India and Pakistan. Its distinct fragrance is from the naturally occurring chemical 2-acetyl-1-pyrroline (2AP). This aroma compound is also found in jasmine rice, pandan spice, etc.
