Ingredients for 8 servings

2 cups uncooked basmati rice (which will yield 5 to 6 cups cooked rice)

3 cups water (or more, depending on the package instructions)

2 2-inch strips of fresh lemon zest (use a vegetable peeler to take just the zest, not the whole peel, off of a fresh lemon)

2 cups shelled English peas (from about 1 1/2 to 2 pounds of shell-on peas), or 2 cups of frozen peas

Salted water for blanching (1 quart water, 1 1/2 teaspoons salt)

1/4 cup golden raisins or currants, plumped in enough water to cover the raisins for 5 to 10 minutes, then drained

1/2 cup minced green onions, including the greens (about 2 green onions)

1 1/2 teaspoons finely grated lemon zest

1 teaspoon finely minced fresh mint leaves (spearmint)

2 Tbsp lemon juice

1/4 cup olive oil

1/2 teaspoon salt
