Tasty and quick! Identical to how I've made it before apart from the slightly more water and longer cooking time than I'd normally use for absorption cooking, that was a good idea because the rice soaked up the turmeric flavor more.

This was good but not much different from buttery rice colored yellow. Next time I'll add some salt to the cooking process and see what that does. But very simple and elegant-looking. Thanks Oolala!
