    This rice recipe is easy and plain but goes well with Bobotie and any meat dish - especially ones with gravy.

    Serves: 4 

    • 1 cup long grain white rice
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground turmeric

    This dish was really sweet and I only used 2/3 of the sugar. I also served it with Bobotie which was also quite sweet so the combination was overpowering. Maybe it should have been 3 teaspoons instead of 3 tablespoons. Otherwise it was quite good with a lovely aroma.  -  12 Feb 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    Super Delicious! So glad I tried this recipe! I used Sucanat instead of sugar, in the same qty listed. I also used some vegetable broth for some of the water and added a handful of cashew nuts. Yum! This will be on our table again!  -  19 Nov 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
