I liked this recipe a lot. The rice was so moist and the leftovers were even better. I did not use any sugar or kaffir lime leaves since I didn't have any; instead I used some lime juice on the rice before I served it. Next time, I think I would use slightly less spices, since I think there might have been a bit too much and it was causing strange numbing sensation on the tongue (and not from the spiciness)
