I made this for lunch this afternoon and it was really good. I used 1/2 cup onions, 2 tbsps. oil instead of butter, a little less than 1/2 tsp. dried rosemary, 1 cup shredded carrots, 1/4 tsp. black pepper, 1 1/2 cups white Basmati rice, 3 3/4 cups Maggi vegetable broth with onions as a substitute for chicken broth- reason being that we're all vegetarians(I prepared this separately at home by dissolving 2 cubes of Maggi veg. broth in 3 3/4 cups of water, bringing it to a boil until the cubes were totally dissolved), 1 cup chopped mushrooms, juice of 1/2 a lemon and 3 tbsps. corriander leaves instead of parsley for garnishing. It made 6 servings for me and all was over in no time(guests appreciated and asked for the recipe!). I must also add that I just visited your homepage and loved your pretty pictures. Thanks for sharing the recipe and glad to meet you on Recipezaar!
