    A nice side dish with plenty of flavor when you don't want the same old plain rice.

      This was good -- mildly flavoured and very colourful. I didn't have green onions on hand, so substituted chopped onions sauteed in oil with the rice during step #2.

      This was the perfect side dish for a mojo carillo marinated chicken dish, with the flavors complimenting perfectly. I loved how pretty the rice looked, light yellow from the turmeric and speckled with flecks of green from the onions and cilantro. I confess to being a cilantro junkie, so I added an extravagant handful instead of the judicial 1/4 cup. PanNan, we enjoyed your recipe very much.

      This was a nice change from regular rice, but the lemon was a bit overkill for us. Will try it again with less lemon. Thanks.
