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.

this rice is excellent. I like the fact that it's a little bland, because I can't handle spicy food very well. It goes great with your curried lentils. good suggestion.

This recipe is a very nice way of serving rice and it looks very pretty in the bowl. I used lime instead of lemon. The amount of coriander is about right - too much more and it becomes over whelming. It would benefit from something to give it a bit of extra oomph but whatever you use has to be very subtle, not hit-you-in-the-face spicey. To me it is a 4 star recipe which I will definitely be making again. A bonus star because my currently picky toddler not only decided to taste it but took several decent mouthfuls. Yay!
