    For the comments below: If 1/2 cup is a serving and it makes four servings, then 2 cups cooked rice is the result. Therefore, you would use one cup of uncooked rice. Therefore, feel free to use whatever Jasmine rice suits you. I will pair with a spicy main dish as a "cooling" side. - 2/25/13

    No one has to know what brand of rice you use. I appreciate the recipes and the companies that pay to advertise on this site to keep it free for us. I have made rice like this using Jasmin rice from the bin section at Winco. It is delicious. I pair it with chicken, yummy. - 2/25/13

    Odd.. I left my comment yesterday to try it today & rate and it vanished. Well, the recipe was delicious! I didn't use the brand name rice, only generic, left out the shredded coconut and added some garlic & onion. Nice and fluffy with lots of flavor. - 2/26/13

    I used a 7 grain blend and it was outstanding! PLEASE, don't feel that every recipe needs to be followed EXACTLY to the tee. If you don't care to use the name brand mentioned, appreciate the recipe for the guideline that it provides for so many other options. Use your imagination and tastebuds! - 2/25/13

    Tasty but I think this twist from my local authentic Mexican place is better. Insead of water, cook the rice in low sodium chicken broth. But before cooking the rice, Quadruple the cilantro, put the broth and cilalntro into a blender to purify the cilantro,then cook the rice in that. Yum! - 2/25/13

    I can't wait to try this! I appreciate this recipe and the suggestion of Uncle Ben's Rice. I understand sponsorship must come from somewhere and find a little bit of advertisement can be tolerated. - 2/25/13

    not rating as i have not tried the recipe yet but i do have a question. I noticed that many of the recipes on this site use white rice or various versions of white rice. How come there is not more promotion of the brown or healthier versions of rice?
