This is quite good.. just add more rice. Duh., Member stopthecrap

So, the recipe needs a little more rice.. so add it then. Hardly deserves one star -- wasn't perfect (just tweak spices to taste) but it really is quite good. Made it tonight with about two cups of rice. Just played with spices to taste and it really was good simple supper.
