This was really good and easy. I just used my rice cooker and cooked it as I normally would (one cup rice 2 cups water) but added in the seasoning from the recipe. Turned out great! Next time I will chop up the peanuts a little more. Read More

I actually just ate this for a light dinner. It was very good I did make a few changes though. I used some leftover Brazilian White Rice from this site (which I did make with white basmati rice). Also I didnt have any tumeric and I added a splash of soy sauce. And I chopped the peanuts pretty finely. It was very good. I'll have to get some tumeric so I can try is as is:) Read More

Took the advice of some other reviewers and added more salt and chopped the peanuts up well. I also nearly doubled the peas and prepared mine in a rice cooker. Excellent side dish with beautiful color. We had this with curried lentils and they worked very well together. Read More

I used jasmine rice for this recipe (which is what I had on hand). Instead of putting in the peas I got a Green Giant frozen package (10 oz box) of peas mushrooms with an herbed flavor packet to mix in which I combined with the rice and topped with almond slivers. The result was yummy. Read More

This is a pretty yummy way to make rice.... it does seem like it could use some sort of sauce over it but I haven't figured out what would go well with it and still be pretty healthy. Read More
