    Cookgirl's Note:

    Found on ricegourmet.com. I don't know how authentic this recipe is to the rice served in Afghanistan. Furthermore, the directions were incomplete and ingredients were missing from the list. I made do with what I had to work with here.

      I made this lovely rice to go with a creamy chicken dish yesterday evening and it was pure pleasure with each bite. The seasoning is spot on for my taste and I will surely be making this again. :D

      Delicious! Everyone loved it. There wasn't as much caramelization as I was expecting when I added the sugar. I served this with Annacia's Not My Mothers Meatloaf or Meatloaf for an Expat in Morroco. Can this be a NA/ME Tag the next time you're IT? ;)

      I used brown basmati rice, so cooked it about 40 minutes. Loved the nice spices in this. Made for Vegetarian swap-June 2013.
