- In the meantime, combine chopped apricots and cranberries in a bowl. Pour boiling water over the fruit and let stand for 15 minutes or until fruit is plump. Drain ans set aside.
- Toast the slivered almonds in a dry pan over low to medium heat for 5-10 minutes or until slightly browned. Set aside.
- I a deep, heavy-bottomed pan, heat the oil and cook the onions and bell peppers. Keep stirring. When onions are softened (after about 5 minutes), reduce to medium heat. Add ginger, garlic, spices, orange and lime peel and cook for 1 minute or until spices are fragrant. Stir in the cooked rice, dried fruit, almonds and coconut flakes. Cook for another 5 minutes.
