    Mischka's Note:

    This is a spicy, fragrant dish with fluffy rice. You could use spicy lamb, chicken or Italian sausages instead of the chorizo. I often change the flavour by using different spices and herbs. Also, sometimes I add frozen peas or green beans. Makes big serves. Australian measurements used.

      This is super simple to make with a wonderful flavour. I loved the spiciness of the sausage mixed with the gorgeous flavours in the rice. I bought a super spicy chorizo our preference and we all loved this recipe. I will be saving this one as a great tasting mid week meal with no fuss that we will enjoy often. I didn't change a thing and it was perfect made exactly as is. Thanks Mischka for a wonderful meal.

      Very nice! We enjoyed this meal tonight for dinner. The flavor was wonderful. I used Italian sausages and omited the turmeric and cooked as directed. Mine did take close to 20 minutes to cook. Thank you Mischka for a nice meal! Made for Ausie Swap #21.
