Easy way to give a little extra flavor to basmati rice. I have made it with white basmati as well and just reduced cooking time to about 15 minutes. Great side dish.

Good variation on the standard rice. I did do it with white basmati rice and maybe i didn't quite wing the fluffyness that everyone talks about.The flavor was definitely on the spot, and went rather well with "spicy indian dahl recipe"

Love it! Used long grain brown basmati rice. I did double the amount of lemon though. I'm a lemon addict! thanks! cg ;)

I thought this was a great recipe. I made this with Baked Chicken. The aroma was heavenly while cooking. Since my bay leafs looked kind of sad, I added a chicken boulllion cube on a whim.The cooking time was right on the money, the rice came out nice and fluffy. I would suggest making this with an Thai or Indian dish though it went nicely with my chicken. Will definitely make this again.

Very nice recipe for a much needed change from plain brown rice. I love the fragrance of basmati rice and adding the lemon and bay leaf are a lovely light flavor enhancement to the rice. I was expecting a stronger lemon flavor and believe I will add a bit more juice or zest next time, but otherwise this recipe is a keeper!
