Cardamom and Fennel Flavored Rice

Why serve the same old boring rice when you can so easily turn it into something a bit special ? This pairs nicely with curries, but also with roasted meat or fish dishes.

    Rice is often just a side dish, but the fennel really elevates it to something delicious on its own. This rice is perfect for dressing up your curry.

    I really liked this, and will be serving it with Indian/Persian food often. Thanks for sharing!

    We had this with Indian food (a shrimp curry and cauliflower) and it was great. I used brown rice and I thought that the nutty flavor of the rice worked well with the spices. It went really well with the shrimp. I do think this is a combo that not everyone may like and I think that it's best to pair it with something with lots of flavor. It was perfect for us. Easy and tasty.

    I am sorry, this did not work for us. It was a unique blending of flavors. The directions were exact.
