Delicious! Made this to go with some five-spice orange chicken and it was just fabulous. Thanks for sharing!
This was outstanding! Didn't have the candied ginger either but it was great anyway. I'm not a big fan of raisins, but they were not overpowering and really brought everything together nicely. We loved it. Will be making this often. Thanks for posting it.
Thank you BK for a real treat. This is wonderful. I didn't add the candied ginger and it was still exceptional. No more difficult than making plain rice but so much better tasting. I had this with stir-fried veggies tonight but next time I'll have chicken with it and am already looking forward to it.
Just loved this! I used Jasmine rice. I did have to add 1/2 cup more water. Thanks for the good eats!
Very flavourful rice dish which I used to accompany pan-fried pork chops. Loved the addition of cashews, raisins and the ginger. I don't know if crystallized ginger is the same as candied, but that's what I had, and that's what I used.
I don't know why I was putting off making this. It is so easy to make. The turmeric was so aromatic I could hardly wait for the rice to finish cooking. The combination of flavors worked well together the spices in the rice and the sweetness of the raisins gave it a spicy sweet taste. I may try 1/2 teaspoon of turmeric next time I make this. Thank you for a great recipe!! Made for Zaar Tag 2006
