This rice goes great with spicy Indian or Thai style food. It's slightly sweet and very flavorful.

This was a really flavorful rice. The almonds added a nice crunchy texture, and the coconut milk was just the right amount (not overpowering at all). Thanks Pastry Queen. Made for 2009 Fall Pick-A-Chef.
