I make this according to the recipe, and it is absolutely delicious! It has the same complex flavors as the rice at an Indian restaurant, but seems less oily which I love. This gets raves every time I make it - which is for my family and for company. If you like Indian food, this should be a staple. Enjoy!

Yummy. I improvised a bit - didn't have any cardamom pods on hand, so substituted 3/4 t. of ground cardamom. Sauteed onion and spices on the stovetop, then added to the rice cooker with brown basmati rice (for more fiber) and chicken broth. It was a great accompaniment to an Indian meal!
