Great with low-calorie spicy shrimp or chicken skewers. A little high in calories for rice but it such a treat and truely yummy! ;-)

    I made this last night for dinner and it was a nice change. I used brown rice since I didn't have jasmine rice but it still turned out great. - 6/11/09

    I tried it with brown rice and basmati rice too. It just doesn't taste the same as good old jasmine rice. Thanks for trying it out! :-)
