This rice has wonderful flavor. I ended up using jasmine rice instead of basmati... it was an accident honestly hehe but it didnt hurt at all; it was delicious. Like dale, I did not add any extra butter at the end. I will be making this again!!!

My husband is very particular about the meals that he eats. He said this rice was an excellent combination of flavors and was delicious!! We served this as a side dish to Costa Rican Jalapeno Pepper Steak, Costa Rican Jalapeno Pepper Steak.

I liked the flavor combination of this rice. The taste of the bay leaf was fairly dominant. Next time I'll try using half of a bay leaf.
