Yep I agree
but once you get the knack of using the absorption method you won't do it any other way I always use this method there is a definate difference in taste to the final product.

As a newbie to all this I've only ever used the absorption method before and not getting it right most times and end up washing the rice in cold water, and washing the flavours away at the same time.
Also my biggest fault I've now found out after reading this thread is that I've been over cooking the rice.
So following Cory's method my rice came out spot on with flavours still in tact.

Practise makes perfect..........another bag of rice goes in the trolley !


Thanks Cory.

I wanted to give this a try, but when I went out on my shopping mission, I could only find normal mustard seeds (white ones), and I wondered if that would make much of a difference.  I am still pretty new to some of these ingrediants, so I dont always understand the importance of some of the spices, and the unimportance of others, so some of you may be laughing thinking that of course they are well different, but I do have to ask these things.

Hi SM,

Dont worry SM, it's a perfectly reasonable question!  If in doubt, just ask! 8)

You can use white (yellow really!) if you can't find black (reddy brown really!).  There is a subtle difference, but nothing to be unduly worried about.

Otherwise, just omit them, they are optional anyway   ;)

PS:  Put a lid on when frying them!  Otherwise they will pop all over the place!  :P

Done this one tonight in my rice steamer - without the food colouring,(havent got any in stock) so I used a bit of turmeric instead - it tasted fantastic - better than any BIR pilau I've sampled. cheers CA :)

Hi PhilH,

Glad you liked it  8)

The recipe should be enough for about 4-6 (greedy!) adults!  :P

But the answer is "yes" to both questions! 

The rice freezes really, really, well.  I recommed it if you have room in your freezer (please see point 7 in the "notes" to the recipe  8))
