    Perfect mix of ingredients!! Tip.. It says to use cookin oil, I used olive oil, and then tried it with sunflower oil, the sunflower oil def give a better flavour.  -  23 Jun 2013


    Did this recipe with white basmati rice and added coarsely chopped fresh pineapple and used salted peanuts instead of cashews. Lovely - will definitely do this again  -  21 May 2014


    Used different ingredients. Did not include ginger, or green capsicum. Used dried currants instead of raisins (they are smaller and spread more evenly without needing to cut them up), and finally replaced the nuts with toasted pepitas and sunflower seeds (these are lower cost, achieve the same nutty crunch)  -  06 Nov 2010  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
