I was attracted to this recipe because the spices looked as though they would add great flavor. I adapted it to suit our tastes and used white rice, added 1/4 cup white wine to the rice after heating it in the oil so it would be more flavorful. I used frozen italian tomatoes from our garden and chopped them before adding. I added prepackaged and precooked turkey/chicken with sun dried tomato and mozzarella sausage cut on the diagonal after everything was done just to heat the sausage. It was YUMMY! We all love this recipe and will make it often, of course with our "tweaks" and whatever else we have on hand. I would have given 5 stars but I really think the wine added more flavor. Oh, and I was light on the hot stuff. Our granddaughter cannot tolerate it and neither can I. It seems that a lot of recipes today have a lot of hot peppers in them.

This recipe is awesome!!! I use brown Basmati rice which I saute as suggested with the garlic and onion. I then cook the mixture along with the chicken broth in a rice cooker then add the remaining ingrediants. This is recipe is so great, I am able to prep everything while my 6 month old sleeps then combine the remaining ingrediants for a great dinner. Thank you Danya01 for a great recipe!!

This recipe is excellent. The cilantro/corriander at the end really sets the dish off. I have 2 little boys (2 & 6mos) so time is not a luxury I have. I cut the tomato & onion while they were sleeping. I put the dish on to cook as directed, and it was ready in the time suggested. I would probalby add a touch more spice to it (cumin & pepper), but I did not have curry powder so did not use it. The beans were also enough, but not too much like some other dishes with beans & rice. 5 stars based on taste, ease, and healthiness.
