I am preparing this rice recipe for my co-workers today. I was intrigued by the ingredients. I thought it was salty at first until I threw the peas in. It is a very colorful dish and mother said it was delicious. The jury is still out for me. Cook time is not long enough, I would honestly cook it another 10 minutes, 20 minutes even if you are making this for a large group. I plan to make again just tweaking a few things.
This is a very colorful dish that is attractive on the plate. A nice twist on rice and peas. I love coconut flavored rice, but for me the coconut flavor was a bit lost in this recipe. The flavors also didn't really seem to work for me or my family, even though I enjoy all of the ingredients usually. The rice needed about 10 more minutes cooking time for me.
This is super!!!! It really tastes like island rices that I have had in restaurants! I mixed my own jerk seasonings using recipe#252287 recipe by Gregory Schulte. I just love the sweet and creamy flavors of the coconut paired with spices and saffron rice! Then the peas give it another flavor dimension for your mouth! I will definitely make this again, thanks for the recipe!!
