A fragrantly spiced pilaf-style dish that doesn't take much more effort than ringing for a take-away yet is much healthier as it is low in fat. Serve with a refreshing raita to complete the meal.
Replace some or all of the spinach with thinly sliced mushrooms, adding them to the casserole with the rice. * Sliced red or green peppers would also work well in this dish. Add them with the onions. * Serve any leftovers cold the next day as a rice salad.
Used different ingredients. i followed the recipe to the letter, except for three things: i added some mustard seeds (1/2 tbsp) along with the other spices, i used about 3/4 tbsp dried crushed chillies instead of the fresh chilli, and i used cod cut into pieces instead of prawns, just b/c that's what i had on hand. - 11 May 2009
Great recipe! Made 4 generous and very tasty servings. Just make sure you start off in a big enough pot! - 20 Apr 2013
