South African Yellow Rice with raisins is made by adding turmeric to the cooking water, along with raisins. In Afrikaans it's called 'Begrafnisrys' which means 'funeral rice'. It refers to the fact that people would usually have to travel a long way for funerals in times when ox-wagons were the most common type of transport, so everything would be done to make the simple ingredients farmers had on hand more 'special'.
