    French Tart's Note:

    A wonderful African inspired yellow rice dish that my Mum always makes. I have adapted her recipe slightly - and this cooks very well in a rice cooker - a gadget I would NOT be without! If you don't have any fruit chutney available, add a handful of sultanas & toasted flaked almonds and maybe a tablespoon of peach or apricot jam too. A wonderful accompaniment for most types of stews, cassroles, curries & tagines.

      Love this! Made half the recipe using Fresh Fig and Ginger Chutney from the Auberge and home grown saffron. reminds me of Saffron Rice. Thanks for good eats!

      A perfect subtly flavored rice, perfect with curries, and so easy. It will be my default rice from now on.

      Great flavors and easy to throw together in a rice cooker. I used hot mango chutney but it didn't add much heat at all. I like the fruity flavor so I may double up the chutney next time. Definately a keeper.
