  1. I like the spices you used here. I am always leaning towards the soy-sesame or southwestern flavors in rice, but this does sound like a tasty change of pace. Cinnamon and cardamon is always in the spice rack, so this recipe may be on the table soon. Hope you are enjoying the weekend!

  8. Basmati is the only type of rice I cook because its the best recommend for diabetic. My other half is diabetic so I switched to basmati long time ago.

    Lovely spices and that chicken broth added is new to me, simple and flavourful.
