This was very good, but it made a ton of food (you'll really need a LARGE bowl for this), and it lasted me for almost a week. The Woman I Love tried some of the leftovers, and she liked it a lot too.
This recipe represented two "firsts" for me: I'd never cooked with basmati rice before; and I'd never cut corn off the cob before (which was tedious and messy the first time, but I'll do better next time!). I followed the recipe to the letter. One funny thing, though. The corn never got "lightly browned". I kept adding 5 minutes at a time to the original 15 minutes. I finally gave up at 35 minutes - the corn was cooked, no doubt, but still not browned that I could see. I wonder why that was?
All in all, this was a great recipe. It takes a bit of time to make (I don't enjoy peeling, seeding and dicing tomatoes), but the final result is very tasty and will go a long way (I found that the "8 servings" amounts to 8 pretty full plates of the stuff).
