Loved it. Served with Crock Pot Indonesian Beef Recipe #130534. Used my rice cooker. I softened up the onions by just cooking them a few minutes in a bit of oil, then literally dumped all ingredients in my rice cooker and switched it on. Twenty minutes later - perfect. Would make again stir in chicken after done for a one dish meal. Keeper.

This is wonderful!!! I just finished having this for dinner with Braised Pork in Soy Sauce and it is now a favorite meal in this house! My husband and I gobbled every last bit of it up and loved every second of it! I would definitely recommend trying this recipe! There is such a wonderful blend of flavors and the cinammon is a really great twist!! Absolutely wonderful recipe!!!

This rice has so many nice flavors and just a bit of spicy hot. I didnt have turmeric so I substituted ground mustard and used 8 ounces of brown rice. The cinnamon is perfect to pull all the flavors together! Thank you LikeItLoveIt for a wonderful side dish. I served this with Braised Pork in Soy Sauce.
