Stir rice into salad oil in top of medium size double boiler; heat over direct heat, stirring constantly, until rice is well coated with the oil.
Blend in turmeric, curry powder and salt; stir in raisins.
Add enough water to the broth to make 1 1/2 cups (or use bouillon cubes dissolved in 1 1/2 cups boiling water); stir into rice mixture.
Cover; cook over simmering water 1 hour, or until rice is fluffed and tender and liquid is absorbed.
