I used dehydrated onions because I was out of fresh. Skipped the butter and increased the sesame oil to 1/2 tsp & I used black sesame seeds. I use jasmine rice and poured everything into my rice cooker and voila! It was a truly delightful side dish! TY!

My rice was cooked to perfection. I used 1 small yellow onion. I used 3 leaves of fresh sage. It gave the rice a nice taste. I would have like more taste of the sesame oil. Maybe a little bit of soy sauce would have been great. Thanks CatalinaCrawler. Made for ZWT4
