Don't know where this came from but have been making it for ages. Accompanies everything, but is especially good with fancy fish dishes where you might want something simple yet tasty. Hope you like it.

Great rice dish, and very easy. Went great with baked chicken. I added about 2 tbls. minced fresh onion while cooking. Made for tag game at Kittencalskitchen.com
Very tasty rice - I prepared lemon curried lamb chops as well and poured the sauce from those over the top of the rice - made an excellent side dish. Thanks for posting.
This was very good ~ served with a baked chicken dish and a green salad, the flavors complimented very well. I used a Jasmati rice, so this was very light and delicate. Thanks so much AuntSana for a sweet side dish ! made for PAC FALL 2009!
