    Purple Becca's Note:

    A tasty low fat rice that gets a few extra veggies into your daily diet. I use ground cinnamon because my family don't like 'bits of wood' in thier food! I also use brown basmati and it doesnt seem to take any longer to cook. Great with curry but could accompany lots of different dishes. I dont use salt in cooking but a little added just before serving may be required. I developed this recipe from a book called 'Indian Cooking'.
