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.

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.
