    Altered ingredient amounts. You might want to reduce the stock and water a tad and add them as u go, that way its a dryer dish.  -  12 Mar 2010  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    Something else. you can add smoked bacon diced or a pigs tail when you add the rice for a nice porky floavour and it makes it more of a one pot meal  -  20 Oct 2008  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
