This is a very common dish in Israel. I usually serve my rice with fried onions, but tried this for a change. Presentation was nice and it realy livened up the rice.

This is an outstanding rice dish. I loved the almonds and raisins mixed in with this. I served this with Island Pork Tenderloin (Optional Salad) and it was a huge hit. I made as directed except left out the parsley. Thanks so much Merlot for a repeat recipe.

Having recently discovered that raisins are not just for dessert makes for some great new dishes at our house ... and this one was great! I didn't manage to find the Success rice and went with using brown rice prepared using Susan Lees Perfect Brown Rice 56242, and it was perfect for this dish! We love brown rice and we especially enjoyed it made up using this recipe. It was sooo good and so complimented your Moroccan Lemon Chicken. Definitely a keeper! Thank you Merlot for sharing this delicious recipe.
