Quick and colorful rice dish.

Top Review by Aunt Cookie

As written, this recipe has a few problems, but with some adjustments it was very good. Similar to the other reviewer, I felt that the recipe called for too much onion. I also thought that the spice amounts were way too large (and I don't typically say that...I usually add extra spices). I used one onion when I prepared this, and I used a teaspoon each of the four spices, rather than a tablespoon each. Next time I would probably reduce even further, especially the clove, as my tongue was tingling from all the spice. I wonder if maybe the recipe calls for 2 1/2 cups uncooked rice (5 cups cooked), as this would make more sense with the spice and onion amounts. Regardless, I enjoyed the finished product and would make this again with the adjustments I mentioned above. I would probably add a green veggie to it, too (maybe peas) to make the rice more colorful. Thanks for sharing!
