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.

I loved this rice! But, I have to admit that I deviated from the given recipe in a significant way. While it called out 1 Tablespoon of turmeric, I used only 1/2 of a teaspoon (since I know that turmeric is rather strong)! I will be making this many more times though, and am going to increase the turmeric to see what amount I like best. I also think that the addition of the extra butter at the end helped to make the dish. Thanks a thousand times for this wonderful keeper.

This was great, simple and easy to make. I was out of chicken broth and just used water, which worked out fine; plus I was looking for a light rice dish that wouldn't be competing with the chicken vindaloo that I was making. I also added broccoli florets so it would cook with the rice and it worked out well. Thanks!

This was a good rice dish but the whole tablespoon of turmeric was too much for our taste. I'll make it again but I'll cut the turmeric by half.

Delicious rice dish! I didn't have any basmati so just used regular long grain rice. Also I didn't add any extra butter at the end. I really enjoyed this and it makes a great side dish.

Call humans just STOP killing other creatures and use vegetable broth instead? This is a great recipe with vegetable broth instead of chicken broth because ironically the tumeric (spell check does not even know what turmeric is OK?) fights the bad things that a dead chicken adds to the recipe. Can we start talking about how heinous corporate factory farming really is? Make this recipe with the veg broth and you will not be disappointed and as a result, much healthier. Thank you!

A characteristic feature of curcumin (turmeric has curcumin) - is its ability to be painted in yellow color is not only animals, but also vegetable fibers, without stain. In this respect, it is similar to an artificial organic azo dyes. However, it does not matter))) The main thing - I have been taken for 3 months on the advice of a wise man (do not give out names))) and back pain (because of her I awoke at night!), gone forever! There you have it, guys.

Flavor was good but not great. The turmeric was really strong. Color was fine and the overall taste was just okay
