Very tasty & easy to put together. My stove has a simmer setting but it must not have been hot enough so I needed to cook about 10 mins more. Liked the cumin flavour. Thanks for sharing.

This was FANTASTIC ! It was great that I cooked the whole thing, because with 18 below temperatures outside and plenty leftover this works out great. Made recipe exactly, and is a keeper for me. Made for 1-2-3 hit wonders.

The rice was great! The only extra I added was black pepper. As with many recipes, it's better the second day as flavors meld together.
