  • “I loved this recipe! These were the best rice I’ve ever had! In stead of using the oven I just let the rice boil on the stove until all the water was absorbed – then I let it rest for 10 minutes. It was perfect! Thanks Brian!”

  • “This was excellent served with dal curry. Very simple to make and tasted just fabulous! Thanks for sharing!”

  • “Excellent rice dish to have with our curry. It was simple to make, tasted great and freed up a burner. I’ll be making this again thanks Carla. I only cheated a little, I added stock powder at the end of step 4, then poured already boiling water over the rice before stirring and popping it all in the oven. I have found rice cooks better this way.”
