Very mild tasting and enjoy the pine nuts for a bit of texture. I was unable to find basmatic so bought a short grain rice. Weird but in rural Wisconsin, there are limitations. For step 11, I left the rice on burner with the heat off. The towel technique works really well.

Great recipe! Instructions were right on and flavor was wonderful. I keep your Saudi Kabsa Spice Mix (recipe 369025) on hand, since making it earlier this year. Thanks for this keeper. Made for Holiday Side Dish game at kittencalskitchen.com

Very nice rice, I hadnt tried the paper towel method before but it certainly does work. I'm pretty sure that at step 11 I should have turned the heat off, so I did :) Made your Saudi Kabsa Spice Mix especially for this, very good spice combo. This made an attractive and tasty rice that I will certainly make again, thank you! Both recipes made for I Recommend tag game, they were a good find :)
