      This is fantastic, and so quick & easy! I too used basmati rice, oil (not butter) and veg stock, to make it vegan. Very nice with fresh diced tomatoes.

      A delicious rice made for ZWT3. We used basmati rice and loved the blend of spices in this simple side dish. Thanks Rita.

      Sorry...but I didn't like it. Too much cumin, and not that great in taste.
