    LC6's Note:

    Mmm delicious yellow rice. Don't forget to pick out the cloves and cardamom pods as you eat! Serve with Low-Fat Chicken Curry (it won't be low fat any more if you serve it with this lovely buttery rice!)

      This rice is wonderfully aromatic, rightly spiced and simply delicious! I loved the taste of fennel seeds in particular in this. I used Maggi vegetable broth with onions as a substitute for water to cook the rice. Also, since I used broth, I omitted the salt. I stirred in 2 tbsps. of chopped fresh mint leaves while the rice was cooking. Once the rice was ready, I garnished it with 2 tbsps. of chopped fresh corriander leaves and 1 tbsp. of chopped fresh mint leaves. I served this rice with a green spinach curry and some yoghurt on the side. Went very well. The colour of this rice was a beautiful yellow. I will be making this rice often because it is so easy, tasty and goes well even on its own. Even my picky eater bro. loved it! Thanks for the recipe!!!

      I make this recipe all the time, it is foolproof and everyone loves it. Leftovers are also delicious cold mixed with Tuna and/or salad.

      Yummy and easy. Found that I had to add a bit more water than what it stated on recipe.
