    This is a good starting point for a good middle eastern side dish. I'm sorry to say that I found it weak as written. I gave this a quick taste test before the water had absorbed and quickly added a healthy big spoonful of chicken stock powder and a 1/4 tsp of cumin. After it was photographed basically as written (the chicken stock and cumin don't show) I added another full 2 tsps of cinnamon and a handful of pine nuts. With that it was tasting pretty darn good. I'll be the first to admit that others might not care for the amount of cinnamon I used but I feel it was needed to get the best out of this dish.

    I guess this dish just wasn’t our style. We like our dessert rice creamy.
