      Sue, this is so good, how do I thank you? This tasted like its come from the best hotel in the world. It was very flavourful and an extremely good comfort food. I did substitute the butter/margarine with cooking oil and the Tobasco sauce with Soy sauce as I didnt have that on hand. Otherwise, I stuck to the recipe. One thing that I wanted to point out was that after the veggies are cooked and kept aside, when the rice is added in, its not necessary to stir fry it for 7-8 minutes to obtain the light brown colour. The colour comes to the light brown shade within 2-3 minutes maximum. Keeping the rice without any liquid(stock/water) for 7-8 minutes would DEFINITELY result in burning the rice. This is otherwise a perfect recipe for a lunch party! Thanks, will make it the next time we have a party!

      Excellent rice recipe! Love all the flavors and color. I added more veggies and had to skip the parsley because I was out. DH and I both loved it. I'm looking forward to making this as a side for kebabs. Thanks for sharing this keeper recipe.
