South African Yellow Rice

South African Yellow Rice created by JoyfulCook

This is a traditional South African recipe, which comes from the great culinary tradition of the Cape Malays -- originally brought in as slaves in the 17th century. It's easy and plain, but great with meats like venison, corned beef tongue or any meat with gravy. Recipe courtesy of Allrecipes. Posted for Zaar World Tour II.

    it was good. maybe my issue was that i used brown long grain rice instead of white. my guests loved it.

    My Wife and Daughter enjoyed this, it was my turn to cook so I gave this a shot with along with a nice butter chicken recipe I found. <br/><br/>The sugar though is way too much. 1 Tbls will be plenty. It was just too sweet and killed the flavor of the other items. I also had trouble "fluffing" as it turned out to be pretty claggy, but perhaps that is just me as a guy trying to cook.

    It was a really nice rice, although I cut the sugar way down as I am not a fan of sweet rice, the taste was great, thanks for posting

    deelish. I added nothing. Perfect side dish. Make sure you rinse the rice.
