I am preparing this rice recipe for my co-workers today. I was intrigued by the ingredients. I thought it was salty at first until I threw the peas in. It is a very colorful dish and mother said it was delicious. The jury is still out for me. Cook time is not long enough, I would honestly cook it another 10 minutes, 20 minutes even if you are making this for a large group. I plan to make again just tweaking a few things.
