I liked it but didn't love it. It's full of flavor but I found myself feeling overwhelmed by the flavor by the last few bites. It would definitely make an excellent accompaniment to the right protein but for me, it was too much as a main dish.
Spice is perfect. This dish is fragrant with a pleasing Indian flavor profile - great for those of us who don’t love a spice bomb (it’s a myth that all Indian food is highly spiced). Now if there were a protein included (or available as a side), I’d put it on auto repeat.
It is the one dish we have tried so far that was not great. It was quite bland and the rice tasted much more like Uncle Ben’s quick rice than fresh cooked rice. The spices had very little flavor; perhaps they were old? Given the ingredients and the lack of flair to the dish, I’d say it was considerably overpriced. I’d give it 1 1/2 stars if possible.
I sprinkle some curry powder on top of the materials that are in the wooden container. Makes it more palatable.
I love the fact that there is flavor and yet it is mild. And super easy to prepare.
