"If you're having a hard time getting the rice to cook all the way, cut the sugar back. Otherwise, this is quite good!..." See more"
"Well, my gf made some changes and they must of been the wrong changes because this receipe did not turn out! She used brown rice in place of the basmatti and used brown sugar instead of white. Someh..." See moreow the rice never cooked. It never absorbed the water. My guess it that the sugar coated the rice so much that it couldn't cook. She cooked it for at least 45 mins and it was still hard. We tried to eat it- but it was very very sweet- and the cashews were soggy. Seems to me the cashew and the raisins could be added last- instead of cooking them with the rice. - and use add less sugar- as the previous review suggests."
