I used 1/2 brown basmati & 1/2 white basmati in a rice cooker, made with vegetable stock instead of water & added coconut flakes to the rice. At the end, I threw in 1C cashews (chopped) & 1 C gren onion & just before end of cooking, 1 C golden raisins It was wonderful & served with vegetable curry.
Flavorful Cashew Rice is quick and easy. Just stir in chopped green onions and cashews to cooked long-grain rice and you have a hassle-free side dish.
