I made this recipe exactly as written with no deviations. I made this dish for my BBF to take to her elderly parents along with Lorac's Recipe #89733. They really liked the dish, but stated it was a bit dry, as did I when I tasted it. They all loved the flavor and thought it was a very novel dish with great potential. I would have to agree and I will be making this dish again, however, I think I will soak the rice first so that it does not adsorb all the sauce.
