So delicious!!! I've been looking for a recipe to make the dill rice from my favorite Middle Eastern restaurant at home. This is perfect - and perhaps even more fragrant! The "parching" of the rice with the sauteed onion (a new technique to me) added so much flavor. I took the suggestion of other reviewers and added chicken bouillon (used 2 tsp of Better Than Bouillon brand which I prefer over the cubes) in place of the salt. The recipe didn't specify what kind of onion so I used minced shallots and it was delicious. Dill is a really subtle herb and blends with lots of flavors so you can pretty much serve this with anything. I served it with salmon in a maple/soy/garlic sauce and it was a huge hit!
Very good. Nice accompaniment to kebabs or grilled chicken breast.
This recipe is a keeper! Only thing I do different is sub 2 chicken boullion cubes for the salt and pepper. It gives it an extra dash of flavor. This goes great with almost any meat and my family loves it.
I made this for dinner along with Lemon Butter Tilapia#147551 and a green salad...DELICIOUS! I did cut the recipe in half and used chicken broth for the water. Going into my Favorites of 2011.
Very tasty! "Parching" the rice was new to me and I'm not sure if I did it right.
This is an amazing dish. The lemon and dill compliment each other. I put this dish with a maple glazed salmon. Bon Apetite! You will love this dish! Kudos to the creator
This makes a nice rice side dish. It has a lovely tart flavor from the lemon & dill. I served it with a sesame coated baked tilapia and a slaw. Thank you for sharing your recipe! Reviewed for PAC Fall '07.
Rice is always welcome at my table. It is one of DH's favorite sides and I love to find new and different ways to prepare it. I took the advise of the previous reviewer and cooked the rice in chicken broth. It is nicely seasoned and went very well with fish. Made for *PAC September 2007*
The next time I make this, I'll use canned chicken broth in place of the water. This was good, but it did seem to be missing something. I believe that the chicken broth will make it taste like lemon chicken soup.
