About this recipe: This lovely lemon rice side dish is a flavourful accompaniment to chicken or as part of a larger Asian style meal.
Really enjoyed this rice side dish. I had concerns that this would be too much lemon juice but that wasn't the case. The lemon juice provides a bright & fresh flavor but doesn't dominate. Also, don't skip the cumin seeds, as that's an ingredient that really makes this distinctive. I thought some freshly-chopped mint might be a good addition, and it partnered well with the other ingredients. Lots of nice layers of flavor in this recipe. Used my spiralizer for cutting the courgettes (zucchini) for a little different presentation. Very nice! - 23 Feb 2015
This was excellent and so easy to cook, I left out the sugar as I didn't have any in. I halved the recipe as it was for 2 adults and a toddler but there is still plenty left over for tomorrow nights dinner. Tonight I served it with cajun chicken, salad and tzatziki, tomorrow will be chilli, I think it would also go well with stirfried beef, very versatile, thanks for the recipe! - 16 Nov 2014
