I made this for a birhtday potluck and received many compliments. I did increase the amount of rice and wouldn't suggest doing that as it made it too dry for my taste. Stick to the original amounts and it should turn out perfectly. The combined flavor was so good that I will make it again, but will do it according to the recipe.
