    This recipe is delicious. Zest lemon first so you have half to add to the rice.

    This was extremely delicious. It was only the second recipe made in my Thermomix and I’m excited!!

    This is a great recipe. Had friends over for dinner and they loved it. An easy way to feed a group too! Next time I might add a dollop of yoghurt, some fresh coriander and maybe some crumbled feta – will definitely be making this one again!

    Just gave this a go. Had no tumeric and used sweet potato but still turned out lovely. The recipe is a keeper. Your guests will think you have gone to a lot of trouble…. but it was really easy.
