      This recipe has nothing to do with "Uncle Ben's." It couldn't be further from what it's trying to copy; Uncle Ben's has no chicken, no turmeric, no cumin, and no ginger. The finished product is actually orange-colored from the turmeric. It's not bad, it's just not at all a copycat of Uncle Ben's as it claims.

      I thought it tasted like Uncle Ben's, but next time I make it I will halve the amount of salt and turmeric. It was too salty and a little bitter from all the turmeric. We used brown rice and wild rice and cooked it longer, still tasted great.

      Not even close to the Uncle Ben's in flavor. I loved the finished product, though as many other reviewers point out, the wild rice needs to be cooked a bit before hand. I used the full teaspoon of turmeric, and it did impart something of an Indian flavor, but not objectionable. Used finely chopped fresh sweet onion instead of the dried onion flakes, and forgot the parsley, too. The overall product was quite yummy.
