Loved this rice-kind of pilaf style. I used basmati rice and otherwise followed the recipes. Delicious served with Garam Masal Chicken#163665 for a great gluten-free dinner for ZWT8 in India. Photo also to be posted

Wonderful rice! I loved the peppers, onions and the splash of lime. This came out surprisingly light tasting - though it was kind of crunchy-chewy with all the onions and the mustard seeds. We really enjoyed this, even DD liked it and she is not a fan of onions. Will definitely make this again - thanks for posting AlaskaPam - made for ZWT8 adn the Herbaceous Curvaceous Honeys!

This was a wonderfully flavorful rice. I really enjoyed the smorgasbord of spices and tastes in this rice dish. Thank you for sharing your recipe, AlaskaPam. Made for ZWT8.
