    I made this recipe but i was out of cornstarch and vanilla so i left those out, but i did add 1 banana for some flavor but the only problem was that the rice didn't cook at all. Next time i am going to pre-cook the rice fully or part way and let it cook the rest in the sauce as it thickens. But otherwise, it was really good!

    only thing i would change is to use already cooked rice then it comes out perfecto.

    This recipe as written does not work well. I followed it exactly and the rice wouldn't cook. I think I used long grain white rice...maybe if you used a different rice you need to specify it in the recipe. HORRIBLE!
