This is a classic summer recipe in my family, cooked in alternative to old boring rice salad, can be made a complete though light meal by adding 2-3 cups cooked prawns. Complete with iced tea, savoury muffins and fresh fruit, delicious!

Absolutely delicious. I did toss in some grilled shrimp, and extra garlic, and it got raves!

This was just ok. We liked it but we weren't really fond of it. It would have needed some extra kick for us. Thanks for posting!
