    I loved this dish! My children were so inquisitive about "purple rice". I was just glad they ate it!

    I had a hard time finding the rice but finally found it at - they've got the Alter Eco and the Lotus Foods forbidden rice which someone else mentioned being the same thing but I don't think it is. This recipe was fantastic but I'm looking forward to cooking up this gorgeous purple rice in a sweet rice pudding.

    This is a fabulous easy to make dish! I used turkey breast which worked just as well. I considered omitting the coconut milk but I'm glad I didn't! It really added to the flavor!

    I have had to make this dish twice within two weeks. We absolutely love this dish. I add golden raisins to give it a sweet taste.

    This is a fabulous and delicious dish. I cannot even begin to describe the aroma of chicken colombo when it is cooking - it makes your house smell amazing! And, as other contributors have noted, it was very easy to prepare. A huge hit with everyone who was lucky enough to grab a plateful while it lasted!

    This was delicious! Even my children enjoyed it, and the bonus for us is that is is naturally gluten/casein free. As for the coconut milk, I also used Thai Kitchen brand, only I keep my cans refrigerated. When kept cold, the water seperates to the bottom, leaving a nice thick cream you can scoop out. But I'm sure it would have worked just fine either way. This is a very versatile meal, and a hit with everyone!

    I made this dish tonight and it was so easy and fast. I bought Lotus Foods brand purple rice ( named Forbidden Rice by this company) and it was delicious. I bought the rice at Whole Foods in Princeton but could not get the brand used on the show even though they said on the show that Whole Foods carries it. I used light organic coconut milk to save on the calories and it was wonderful. Still thick and delicious.

    This was delicious and easy. I added chickpeas to the mix and it was good. Even my 5 year old liked it. Thanks for a great dinner idea!

    This was such a simple dish to throw together. I used Thai kitchen brand coconut milk and it was as thick and creamy as the one used on todays show. I did not have purple jasmine rice on hand so I used cous cous instead. I served on the side a plate of hummus and crudite and pita wedges, and sliced oranges. Very colorful very tasty.
