    This rice dish pairs very well with grilled lean meats(chicken or pork) and of course, with the cauldron curry. It turned out wonderfully, and what was left over did not last long. This is another favorite recipe in our household.

    This rice is delicious and so easy to make. I've only eaten it with the curry dish, but I can imagine it would be great paired with a number of spicy or savory dishes.

    I made this for my Halloween party and it came out beautifully! I would omit the ginger though, the curry had enough spices for the entire meal. I also doubled this recipe for about six people. I used Mahatama Jasimine rice and decreased the water by 1/2 a cup. Cooked perfect :D
