    Brian Holley's Note:

    Boiled rice is fine but often improves when other ingredients are added. The mushrooms and zucchini add texture and flavour to this dish. It is also a lot more colourful, serve with chicken dishes and curries.

      I really liked this recipe very much. The rice came out perfectly using this method. The cumin and coconut really made this rice extra special. This recipe reminds me of well made pilaf. Thank you Brian for posting this recipe - will be making it again!

      What a healthy and delicious rice, you could eat this by itself quite easily! I obediently followed the directions and produced perfect rice (I added the cumin seeds), to which I then added the gently sauteed vegetables. I did omit the coconut, Brian, sorry about that, I don't particularly like dessicated coconut, altho I don't mind coconut milk/cream. A flavoursome and delicious rice, thanks, Brian!
