Instructions
  1. Heat oil in a medium non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onions and saute for 3 minutes or until they are slightly translucent. Add carrots and continue to sauté 5-8 minutes or until carrots are soft. Sprinkle 1/4 of teaspoon salt over mixture and stir to combine. Be sure to stir the carrot mixture often to prevent sticking and burning. Use more oil if needed.
  2. Soak raisins in hot water for 5 minutes, strain out water and add to pan with carrots and onions, stirring to combine. Remove pan from heat.
  3. Add cooked rice, sugar, salt, and pepper, toss with a fork until all ingredients are well combined.
  4. Transfer to a serving bowl and serve warm.
