Our family enjoyed this with our fish tonight. I didn't add the lemon peel because that wouldn't have gone over well with the kids. And I topped it with butter rather than olive oil. A nice side for fish. Thanks!
We didn't care for this rice dish that much, I mean alhamdulillah (thank God) we have food but this was not that nice. My main problem was the rice was pretty sticky since it was not cooked with any fat but I did add the unrefined extra virgin olive oil on top at the end. I used white Indian Basmati rice which I rinsed and soaked as much as required first. It is a rice I cook often. I found the garlic slices to be too strong because they were kind of thick. I would recommend cutting them thin. I followed the rest of the ingredients and instructions as stated in the recipe.
