    WizzyTheStick's Note:

    An interesting meld of Indian and Chinese cooking. My husband's cousin always makes this yummy rice for family gatherings. This is her recipe as told to me over the phone. Amounts in the ingredients are our best guesses since she doesn't measure the ingredients. I omitted the salt in the recipe because I cook low salt. You can add salt to taste at step 6. Very little is needed if you choose to add msg and bear in mind that oyster sauce usually contains some salt.

      Made this to go along with Diabetic Asian Lemon Chicken#196336 and what a delicious side dish. I used fresh chicken broth instead of water, added some minced garlic and followed the rest of the instructions! (I didn't add the optional MSG) Thank you for submitting the recipe. Made for Novembers TOTM Diabetes Forum 2011.

      Was looking for a recipe to use my newly purchased Saffron that I brought back from the Carribean. This recipe was absolutely terrific. The whole family liked it. Thanks!

      I cheated on this recipe. There was leftover Classic Saffron Rice and Petit Pois (Cajun Baby Peas) in the fridge and after the carrots, onions and peppers were sauted, I tossed in the precooked rice and peas, warmed and this was delicious. The onions were sliced green onions. A delightful dish to serve with Diabetic Asian Lemon Chicken.
