      This rice is phenomenal! Fragrant and flavorful. The recipe makes a gigantic batch -- 1/3-batch would still leave the 2 of us with leftovers! We use 1 teaspoon of salt instead of 2, and only 1/4 of a regular-sized onion.

      EXCELLENT RECIPE! It is blessed with a great flavour and made a wonderful meal tonight with dahi boondhi. Yummy! Just few small changes: I did step 2 before step 1. In other words, only after the cumin seeds had crackled and the spices were giving out this awesome smell, I added the onions and some green chillies as well. Also, I substituted the saffron with turmeric powder. The rest is just the same. Thank You Rhonda for this memorable meal:)!

      This is very similar to a recipe that came from an Indian friends private cookbook. Why people review these recipes on the basis that they EAT the cinnamon etc. is beyond me, but what the.. For a really tasty difference, add 2 tsp of sugar when frying spices. Cook the onion a little more fist. Should be really soft and brown. I tend to omit the peppercorns and have added curry leaves instead of bay. Try it!!
