    Anu's Note:

    This is an unbelievably flavourful rice recipe that almost seems a little too yummy for so few calories! I found this recice on a newsgroup, trimmed and vegetarian-ised it, and thought I'd share it with everyone here! It can easily be veganised with a suitable butter substitute.

      This recipe is wonderful! I have made it twice and my husband made a variation of it once when we had no onion. He decided to add pineapple to the recipe which was okay, but nowhere near as good as the original recipe. The onion makes it great!

      I had this this afternoon for lunch. I used 2 3/4 cups water, 3/4 tsp salt and 1/8 tsp pepper. I used about 1 medium-sized carrot. Instead of the butter, I used cooking oil. I liked this recipe except for the peanuts. What I found was that even a pinch of the powdered roasted peanuts imparted a very strong peanut taste to the rice(rather TOO strong for me and my parents). Hence, I omitted the peanuts. I find this rice perfect without them. The fact that it is low cal is simply great! Thanks, Anu!
