"A colorful, fragrant Indian-style rice. If desired, for presentation purposes, the rice can pressed into a lightly-oiled bowl, inverted and unmolded on to a decorative serving plate, and then garnished with fresh cilantro and slices of lime and tomato." — MICHELLE0011

Quite tasty. I added onions,ginger and garlic as well as some mushrooms which added a bit more flavor. Nice exotic recipe for entertaining.
I added 1/2 cup of sauteed onion, some fresh cilantro, and (imho) lots of curry to make this
like the Indian take out we usually get. Boys loved this!!!!
Rice turned out really good, nice and tasty I used yellow raisins, and pine nuts instead of the cashews. Served with Lamb and Garlic Naan, was yummy. made for my 3 brothers. no leftovers.
This was nice and exotic. I was surprised by the instruction to sautee the uncooked rice, which promptly got a little burnt by my overacheiving stovetop, but otherwise everything went off without a hitch. With the coconut milk, it comes out very creamy. My boyfriend said that the taste is unfamiliar but good (We don't eat much Indian food).
I made a mistake and used cream of coconut (sweet) instead of coconut milk and my whole family loved it! Then I made it again with the coconut milk and they liked it, but not nearly as much. I personally thought it was too sweet with the cream of coconut, but will try it again using less than a whole can. Thank you for this recipe!
This was so good! I substituted vegetable broth to make a delicious vegetarian main meal. I followed the directions just as it said and it came out just right!
A fantastic recipe. Made it almost exactly as written, except I had no tumeric and used curry powder instead. Wonderful side dish--different and delicious.
My husband & I loved this recipe! The spices were perfect and the house smelled wonderful as it was cooking. The only adjustment I will make next time is to use light coconut milk and a 1/2 cup of cashew pieces, to see if it lightens it up the recipe calorie-wise. I served this alongside Country Captain Chicken and Indian Cauliflower (the later is also on this site). Finally garnishing this with fresh cilantro definitely gives it an added umph, YUMMY!
