    Very good . I agree with the first reviewer it needed a little more seasoning Pepper would be good I still enjoyed it. If you are serving a lot of people this is perfect as it makes a lot

    Good and quick to make. Added a little more of the spices for stronger flavor. I also added toasted sliced almonds for some protein in a vegan/vegetarian meal. My kids like it.

    Was completely flavorless. Just tasted like regular rice with a different color. Unless that's the point. in that case, I apologize

    Delicious, easy, a loved by my family! We had it as a side to accompany Babootie a traditional South African Cape Malay dish and it was perfect and savoury. A big hit, and will be featured many more times on my families table! Highly recommend!
