Lovely rice. Loved the color the turmeric gave it and all the flavor. Served it with Curry Chicken with Coconut and Peanuts.
Perfect! I made this to go with Curry Chicken with Coconut and Peanuts and it was perfect!!! The raisins really made this dish WOW :) My 18 month old loved picking them out, so next time I'll probably double the raisins. Thank you!
This went very well with my buttered chicken recipe! I would add more coconut milk next time, as this was more subtle, but it was a pretty color and perfect texture. Thanks very much for this simple and yummy recipe :)
