I knew I would love the curry leaves in this (and I did!), so I doubled them. I used the amount of seeds in the recipe, which was fine for me - you just have to have the expectation that this is more of an Indian dish than a risotto dish. I also used more liquid and saved the sesame oil for the table. We were glad, since it didn't really match the dish for us. I thought this was a super tasty Indian dish, with a different sort of flair.
I have been shying away from making risotto since I see the contestants on Top Chef always blow it, but this turned out super CREAMY and DELICIOUS with absolutely no butter...amazing. I didn't have milk so used half coconut milk and half almond milk. This deserves five stars if you can update the amount of seeds (very aggressive-maybe give a range) and increase the cooking time and amount of milk. This took way longer but was worth the wait. Thank you for creating this delicious, healthy dish!
