Recipe by Bill Hilbrich

A solo side dish of moist, and flavorful rice. Substituting 1/4 teaspoon of your favorite curry powder in place of the garlic will give the rice a rich glow and a more subtle flavor. Cooking is a Creative Sport.

All in all, a good recipe. My only problem was that my rice was not completely was still a little hard. Could be that my lid did not fit tightly enough as the recipe calls for. It was the perfect size serving for one, very simple to make, and I did eat every bit. It is very flavorful for the mimimal amount of ingredients. I will make it again and cook it a bit longer, maybe 20 minutes, to cook my rice. I'll keep it in my Zaar cookbook. Thanks!
