    Citruholic's Note:

    I made up this recipe from the only turmeric rice recipe I found on Zaar. It was made totally on the fly, and turned out delicious. I hope you feel the same. Rather than writing a review on the original recipe I thought it better to post a different one, since I had made several changes, instead of singling them out in my review of the first one. The mint adds just a hint of freshness to the rice, the mango a small sweetness along with the orange water, the toasted pine nuts add great crunch and texture, and the ginger/garlic marry well with all other flavors without being overpowering.

      This is delicious! I had it with steamed sole & added a garnish of mint and also added some dried hot red peppers to the recipe for some heat. I am dairy-free, so used extra virgin olive oil in place of the butter! I will definitely be making this dish again. I like Barbry T's idea of dried apricots - will have to try that too!

      This is outstanding! The only change I made was to use dried apricots rather than mango (which I dislike rather intensely). The only other "fruity" rice dish I have made in the past was w-a-y too sweet...and this isn't. The balance of flavors is perfect to my taste.
