1 (14.5 ounce) can
long grain rice
onion, coarsely chopped
I used brown rice instead of white to add more nutrition and it turned out tasty still. It's a nice change from ordinary pilaf or boiled rice- smells delicious when cooking and it's the perfecy comfort food on chilly evening.
we made it exactly as listed in instruction and is was very bland. It needed some kick so we added cayenne pepper to it while we were eating at the table.
Really easy and very delicious rice! I served it with Bobotie
I made this rice as written and yes it is very good but felt the flavours needed a little waking up. So next time will do one of the following tweaks 1. add the onion and spices to the broth so this way they will blend better with the liquid or 2. as the broth is coming to a boil in a small fry pan sauté the onion and spices in a little oil and butter. Once the broth is at the boil add along with the rice. Will be making again.
Excellent. I did not change a thing and my whole family loved it.
This was very good and I will make it again. I substituted scallions for the onion, cayenne for paprika to add some heat which it needed in my opinion, and added golden raisins the last five minutes of cooking for a little tartness.
Flavor is delicious, but I did substitute bouillion/water and added salt to the water to be boiled. I paired with Easy Indian Butter Chicken here and rated that recipe too. This recipe made sticky rice, not finely separated Indian rice we're used to in restaurants. Next time I will toast rice in some butter or oil and boil bouillion salt water separately to add to it and see if that solves the sticky rice outcome.
Serving size was right on. My four kids under 10 asked for leftovers in their lunches so I had to forgo my own leftover hopes. Next time I will double the rice.
My first time ever trying to make an Indian rice and it was so delicious! It was so fragrant and it made the house smell lovely. I found the flavor to be excellent and I will definitely make this a regular recipe. The only thing that I did differently was to saute the onions before adding them to the boiling water.
