In a jar, add raw rice, raisins, sugar, water and lime juice.
Pass the yeast mixture through a sieve and add it to the above jar. Mix well. Close the jar tightly with a piece of cloth. For 18 days, morning and evening stir the contents in the jar with a ladle. On 19th day, pass the contents in the jar through a sieve. The remaining clear liquid should be kept in the jar untouched for 10 more days. After 10 days, the wine will become more clear on the top with some cloudy residue on the bottom. Transfer this to bottles (preferably dark bottles). Enjoy with a piece of plum cake.
