mmhmm, really liked this!!!! Very tasty rice! I didn't have an orange but I did have a tangerine, so I used the zest from that ... wonderful flavour! Cooked perfectly, I served this with "rathu Isso Curry" Sri Lankan Red Prawn Curry and they complemented each other very well! definitely a rice that I will enjoy having again! Thanks gailanng, this was made for I Recommend tag game.

Very tasty . . . since I was serving with an orange stir fry I left out the lemon zest, other than that followed your recipe. Made for ZWT #6 Forgot to mention that I used calrose rice instead of Jasmine.

This is a great recipe for rice. I used 1 1/2 cup of water for 1 cup rice. I didn't use salt. I should have diced the garlic. I used green onion at the end. We all enjoyed it. Thanks Gailanng :) Made for the Zwizzle Chicks of ZWT
