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 :)

This basmati rice went really well with Curry Chicken with Coconut and Peanuts (Curry chicken with coconut and peanuts). The currant raisins gave it a nice twist. I had to add water a couple of times so it doesn't dry up. I'll be making it again.

Really good recipe, great accompaniment to a curried chicken main dish. My guests loved it. I didn't have coconut mikl, so I used whole milk. I also used a scant tsp of salt, because I thought 1/4 was too little, the extra seemed the right amount.

This was perfect. Just the right richness and mild flavor to act as a foil to the demonic vindaloo I'm working on, which should be posted after a little more self experimentation. I added 1/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes to this when the spices went in.

We loved this and will make it again soon. Used @1/2 tsp salt. and a dash of lime infused hot sauce in the cooking liquid. Had no dried chiles on hand. It looked beautiful on the plate with chicken, shrimp kabobs and grilled veggies.

I liked this rice but it didn't have as much flavor as I expected. It was good but I don't think I will make it again as I don't usually have coconut milk on hand. It was great to find a recipe for which I could use the one can of coconut milk that ended up at my house, though. Thanks!

I liked this dish. I used the suggestion of boiling and turning off which worked very well. I gave my rice a couple of rinses but it was quite sticky in the pan. Next time I will wash until the water runs clear and cook. My only complaints were it wasn't coconutty enough for me and I got fed up of picking bits of cinnamon stick out of my mouth!

We also tried this rice with the Curry Chicken #37139 dish and thought it was a perfect match! It reminded us of something found in a high class Asian Restaurant. I used the suggestion to bring the rice to a boil for 5 minutes or so and then remove from heat... it turned out excellent! I doubled the recipe to feed 6 and had NO LEFTOVERS!! Thanks!
