Thoroughly rinse the 2 rices in a pan. Fill the pan with 3 cups of lightly salted fresh water and bring to the boil. Reduce to simmer and cook for 25 minutes or until the rice is tender. Drain in a sieve and pour boiling water over the rice to separate the grains.
Set aside to cool.
Combine the rice with the almonds, currants, dill and pancha phora and serve as an accompaniment to fish or another protein.
Note: While rice has a moderate to high GI (depending on the brands), serving it cold with roasted nuts and an accompanying vinaigrette salsa will slow down its rate of conversion to blood sugar in the body.
