A delicately flavoured sweet rice which is a perfect finale to any meal. It is SO easy to make and also very quick as it uses a microwave. As an added bonus it is also low fat!

This was an easy recipe and suprised me by cooking entirely in the microwave. I will definitely be using this recipe again this summer when I don't want to heat up the kitchen. The rice was well seasoned and very pretty. Thank you for sharing your recipe! Reviewed for Pick A Chef Spring 2007.
