I used 1 small shallot, omitted the salt. The cooking method was perfect. The rice came out perfect, not stock to the pan and cooked to perfection :) Thanks Nif :) Made for Market tag game

Wonderful, easy rice dish with unique flavors. The TJ's Basmati rice recommended cooking time is 40 minutes, so I did keep it on the stove longer -- which I think was beneficial for the flavors. Very tasty recipe!
