Very yummy and simple to make. I would however recommend putting the jalapeno in a bit later, because I think it cooked a bit too much and as a result wasn't very flavorful. Thanks Chia! I will be making this again.

This was very good. I enjoyed reading it even, as I could see where you were taking the recipe. It turned out wonderfully. I put the jalapeno in a bit later, and I added the tomatoes just before step 6. I also did not use any tomato paste. I also used regular tomatoes. This was really yummy. Thanks for submitting this recipe.

Wow! I learned something new! I didn`t know America had there version of jasmine rice. I did use fresh grated ginger. Yogurt is the always my first choice which I used. The tomatoes where not great looking so I used canned diced spicy tomatoes. Topped the finished dish off with cilantro(one of my favorite Herbs)! The directions doesn`t say when to add the tomatoes so it did at step 6. If thats not right it worked. Chia, this one is a keeper! Thanks!
