This was decent. I made a few changes:
excluded the onion, substituted kidney beans for red bean, substituted cumin for turmeric, added cheddar cheese
The rice and yogurt mixture was a little bland. If I make this again I'll definitely use the onion and probably add a little more spice. I think the cheese was a necessary addition though.
Overall, I think this is a good solid, healthy vegetarian meal.
Made this dish when I had some friends over. Since several people noted that it was rather bland I kicked up the spices, adding turmeric and paprika along with 1/2 a head of garlic. This seemed to give it a bit more pep, however I think I would season it even more a 2nd time around.
Also, the left-overs heated up extremely well.
All I have to say is I did not care for this...
I really liked it. I thought the flavor of the vegetables really came out and I loved the dense yet fluffy texture of the rice. The flavor wasn't strong, so next time I might try to add a bit more spice, or some cheese as another rater suggested.
