A Chilean friend taught me how to make this. I was addicted to it for a LONG time. This dish is quite tasty when eaten with my other recipe 'Dal Curry'. Enjoy!

Very nice way to serve rice, if a bit on the bland side. I'd suggest using dried basil to complement the tomato in the recipe, and definitely some pepper as Mirjam suggested. I used 1/2 tsp (for 1 serving) oil for sauteing the onions, which was just right, and omitted the oil in the topping. The lemon juice is a really nice touch; I used one whole small lemon! :) The rice took only 15 minutes to cook, and since I chopped the other veggies while it was cooking, I finished making this recipe in less than 1/2 hour!

This rice is superb! The only thing missing was a little hot pepper. Instead of topping the rice with the fresh vegetables I mixed it in to the hot rice and let the heat cook the veggies a bit.

Tastey and easy. I added some sugar and salt to the topping and received raves.
