The kitchen smelt great when this rice was cooking. I made it for lunch this afternoon and we enjoyed it to the fullest with Palak raita(spinach curd) which is recipe number 24973. Together, these made for a complete meal and I thoroughly relished every morsel of it:) My mom loved it as well, thanks, Karen!!

Fairly good mildly spiced rice. I liked the addition of the sliced green onions. My husband and I preferred this rice with a topping of vegetable curry.
