I made this recipe as directed except I left out the okra, only cause my DD doesn't like them. So the next time I make this I would like to try it with okra since I really like them. She found the rice to be a bit too spicy for her, but I really liked it, but it definitely has a good kick. Perhaps I put in more than a dash of the pepper now that I think about it. It didn't take the whole 20 minutes to cook either, it was ready by 15. Thanks for sharing your recipe Joannanla.
