    Delicious! My rice required a little bit more water but otherwise I followed the recipe to a t. Served with African peanut and ginger chicken (recipe nr 249625). Thanks for posting it.

    This is wonderful!! So glad I tried it! Very pretty, flavorful, and easy to make! Made for ZWT7 for Team Emerald City Shakers for the Vegetarian Challenge. Served it aside a vegetarian "meatless" loaf with fried plantains for a fun African meal. Thanks for sharing
