    JustJanS's Note:

    We love this rice dish, but you must promise me not to lift the lid as it cooks (I know the disasterous results of that) or read the nutritional panel. A bit high in cals, but worth it occasionally!

      This was absolutely fantastic! What a great dish. I used reduced fat coconut milk and reduced the servings down to two. I followed the instructions and didn't peek at all. It turned out well cooked and deliciously creamy. I also used ground cardomon instead of pods with no problems. This has a lovely creamy spiced flavour. I served it as part of an Indian meal along with Crockpot Chicken Vindaloo #24139 and Lhassi #22405, but this rice was the star of the meal! Thanks for a new favourite Jan!

      Delicious! I cut it down for two also, and used ground black pepper, so didn't have the problem others had with the peppercorns not rising to the top. Great with some grilled salmon. Thanks, Jan, for this keeper!

      Rich and delicious! The curry leaves add a wonderful counterbalance to the coconut's sweetness. I found that the peppercorns did not raise to the top and were a bit troublesome to remove. I suggest tying the spices in a cheesecloth bag as for a bouquet garni to make their removal easier. I used black cardoman pods and I think that green ones would have been better.
