This recipe is from a KENYA AND TANZANIA site and is specifically a Swahili recipe. It is a starchy staple and they "serve it with curry or main dish". I have added a 3/4 cup of liquid since looking at Weekend's reviews. Posted for ZWT4.

Made for a great side dish for dinner tonight. We all enjoyed this, the rice did burn very slightly. Flavors were great. Made for 1-2-3 hits..

Like another poster, this recipe complimented the ground beef curry wonderfully. I cooked it in a rice cooker and used calrose rice. It turned out perfect for us. I like our rice a bit sticky.
