      The flavor was good but I may have overcooked it a bit as I found the rice a bit dry but then that may just be the way basmati rice is. Thanks for the recipe I'll try it again.

      Like PaulaG I made this to go with your Apricot/Lemon Chicken. This made for a great side dish, and the trick with the kitchen towel was new to me. I checked the rice at 10 minutes and it was still pretty undercooked, it took another 8 minutes to get it to the almost done stage.
