2) In a heavy medium saucepan, add oil and heat over moderately high heat.
3) Sauté cinnamon, cloves, cardamom, 1/2 cup of the nuts and raisins and 1/2 cup of the dried fruits in hot oil for 15 seconds, until the nuts are lightly browned.
4) Stir in the rice and pour in the coffee. Add 1 1/2 cups of hot water.
5) Bring the rice to a boil.
6) Reduce the heat to low, cover and simmer for 25 to 30 minutes, until the liquid is absorbed and rice is tender.
