I used a can of diced tomatoes & the mini chopper to satisfy a young diner's preference for "no chunky tomatoes", but otherwise followed the recipe. The rice has a nice spicy/smoky flavor without being hot. I served it with chicken/veggie kabobs, salad, and melon, but it would be perfect with Indian or even paired with some Tex-Mex dishes. Made in memory of Pet"R"us July 2011.
I made this as directed, using fresh tomatoes and basmati rice. I discovered at the last moment that I didn't have a red pepper, toyed with omitting it or subbing a green pepper, went with the green pepper. We liked the cumin in this, it added a subtle scent and flavour that we enjoyed. I made this to accompany Ga Kho (Ginger Chicken), a very quickly prepared (and delicious) dish, so I first prepared the rice to the point where I could leave it on top of the stove to cook, then prepared the chicken, the timing was perfect and we loved this. These recipes were made in loving memory of Annelies, gone too soon and sorely missed.
This rice was very good. It had a nice Indian flavour to it. I used canned tomatoes for this. I also used basmati rice. Thanks for a great recipe.
This was way good! I'm going to make this for a pot luck on the 3rd of July. My family loved it, even my sister who hates everything I cook. I used a hotter pepper than the ones stated in the recipe, because that's what I had, and the spicyness was good. Thank you for this recipe!
We enjoyed this rice dish very much. A lot of flavor. I didn't change a thing. The fresh green onions and parsley on top added another layer of fresh flavor. I'll make it again.
