The main problem with this recipe is that the liquid-to-rice measurements are off. I'm amazed that it got so many good reviews considering that there is either half as much liquid or twice as much rice as needed for it to turn out. I adjusted my liquids and followed the rest of the recipe. The flavors are good - I like the curry and ginger, but also thought it could use a little sweetness and/or more coconut flavor. Thanks!



Good recipe, I followed it exactly the first time except I used basmati instead of long grain rice. The second time I made it I used 2 cups coconut milk and 1/4 c water and added a little more ginger and again used basmati rice (it doesn't take as long to cook). It's a keeper. Guests asked for the recipe too! Thanks



My Husband and I enjoyed this very much! We added more water than the recipe called for, found the rice was not cooking quite right! Flavour was EXCELLENT!
