very good, I used 1/4 teaspoon cumin powder instead of the seeds, also added in some cayenne pepper and used turkey broth I keep in the freezer in place of chicken stock, I also sauteed 2 tablespoons fresh minced garlic with the onions, thanks for sharing hon!...Kitten:)

Great flavor! Basmati and onion-who knew? I cooked the onion is some water instead of butterWhen it was time to add the cumin seed I discovered that I don't seem to have any. So, I used corriander seed and the whole thing worked out really well for me. I cut the amount to a single serving and have enough for 2 generous servings. I'm glad that I have some for tomorrow! I served this with garlic and herb chicken and baby carrots and okra cooked together.

Very tasty - liked the spicing and onion. Good side to an herbal, roasted chicken.
