I made this rice to go with Tandoori chicken. It was easy to prepare & very tasty. I used only 2 large garlic cloves, 1/2 a sweet onion, a handful of mushrooms & some chopped kale along with the spices & cashews. I always have all these spices on hand so it will be a "go to" recipe, good enough for company, easy enough for every day.

The recipe has a few ingredients I don't usually stock (but have 'em now!), but that just prompted me to try them out! VERY, VERY NICE TASTING RICE, but I'd definitely say this serves 4 very nicely (so the Nutrition Facts are off a bit, what with just 2 servings)! Gave it the full compliment of both chili powder & garlic & it's definitely something to make again! thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed in India - More Than Just Curries Tag Game]

Thank you for this recipe! I was looking for a rice dish (using cooked rice) to serve with my Moroccan Chicken and this was just what I was looking for! Just the right balance of spice, salt, and sweet.

I used leftover Indian rice and added the spices and cashews to make a great dish! Thanks! Made for the Asian Indian tag.

First recipe like this I've tried and it was soooo good. I'd recommend it anytime and anywhere. Did use butter as I didn't have ghee and it worked well.

Very good! I used Jasmine rice, as that is the only kind I had on hand. Used frozen mixed veggies (corn,peas,carrots)and raisans. I then added some diced up sauted chicken. That way it made a meal-in-one and was enough to serve my family of four and have leftovers for tomorrows lunch. The spice blend was very nice and aromatic. Very tasty. One I'll definatly make again. ONE TIP: I hate sticky/mushy fried rice. So, in order for the rice not to stick together, I pre-cooked it yesterday, fluffed it, covered and put it in the fridge until today, when I needed it. Chilling it makes it easily crumbled and loose enough to thouroughly mix the spices, veggies, etc.

This was a great way to use up some leftover rice that would otherwise have found its way into the trash. I used peas, bellpeppers, diced potatoes and carrots in mine. Lovely flavors and very easy to make.
