      I only made the 1 cup of rice which was plenty for 3 of us and even had a serve left over which I will freeze for later. I put 1 1/2 cups of hot water in and it only took about 18 minutes to be fully absorbed, also I did not have any cashews so used roasted macadamia nuts which I chopped up but it was a delicious side enjoyed by us all. Thank you Annacia, made for Everyday A Holiday tag game.

      We really liked the flavours in this dish. The mustard seeds add an extra touch both in terms of flavour and prettiness. Makes the dish stand out.
