    Bokenpop aka Madeleine's Note:

    Another truly South African taste experience. There are many versions of this recipe and this is mine. I serve this rice with frikkadelle accompanied by a simple beet salad and steamed greenbeans.

      Made for ZWT4 – Wonderful rice. The only thing I changed was the amount of salt, since I have a low sodium tolerance. So I only added 1 teaspoon. And DBF agreed it was just perfect. Thanks for sharing.

      This was good but the tumeric needed to be increased quite a lot, I used vegetable broth in place of water and added in some cayenne pepper, next time I make it I will also add in some saffron to kick up the flavor, all in all we enjoyed it, thanks for sharing!...Kitten

      I wasn't sure after the first taste if I liked it... but after a few bites, I did!! I think the raisins and cinnamon make this rice so flavourful. Never tried Geelrys before so I can't compare, but your rice was tasty! I would cook it a little less next time because I found the rice a bit overcooked. Thanks Bokenpop!
