While this was nice it was a little too strong tasting for us. I would cut back on the garlic if I made it again.

I made this for lunch this afternoon and served it with vegetable with brown sauce and some stir-fried vegetables on the side. I substituted the shallots with onions and used 1 1/2 cups water and 1 1/4 cups vegetable stock(instead of chicken stock). I also added 1/2 a tsp of salt to the rice while it was cooking. This rice made me drool over the stove while it was being cooked. It is blessed with a very appealing medium brown colour(which it gets from the vegetable stock) and the green cilantro to top it off made it look awesome when serving it. This was a great meal for me. Thank You for this easy and extremely good rice recipe!

Hi there! :) I made this tonight for a side dish to go with Baked Chicken Teriyaki. What a wonderful meal. The two recipe complimented eachother so nicely. I only made half the recipe, because it was just the two of us. The only things I did different were to use brown rice, dried coriander, and I didn't have any shallots. I'll be making this again for sure!
