    Rice cooking fail made me wonder about my Chinese background. :) But adding toasted black sesame seeds and chopped parsley is delicious!

    How does one artfully photograph a bowl of white rice? I think that assignment is a food blogger advanced challenge- Great pick.

    Nice easy side! I’m off for an extra long, long weekend. Happy Friday all!

    I just ate this rice on its own, in a crispy fill bowl and it was delicious!

      Haha.. what I actually meant was, a crispy filo bowl!

      I soooo enjoyed this post! I loved your story – I think you’re right about food memories. Your photos are wonderful, and I think your creativity is just amazing. So impressive;

      Of course, one of the reasons I love Asian (particularly Thai) food is from living in Australia for a couple of years – and going out to a favorite restaurant with friends each week. Your story brought back those terrific memories, as well as sharing your own story. Wonderful!

      (sorry, I’m having a hard time posting omments to blogger sites – I have no idea why)

    Everyone’s pilafs look amazing! I turned this into a rice pudding :)

    Think this will be a re-appearing as a side dish in my home. I added star anise, it was very good!

    So incredibly easy to make! And delicious!

      Again, trouble with commenting on Blogger sites (and I have a blogger blog!!)

      I love your blog – and how both of you have your own take on things. It’s so much fun to read. I love the part about “Dorie” food – I think many of us have that going on. Good thing they are pretty popular!

    LOVED this rice! simple … elegant … yummy …

    so, of course, I still had to faff with it …

  11. Cocoa and Quinoa May 27, 2011 at 4:59 AM #

    Great basic recipe – and I was able to use some photos from my last India trip too in my post!

    • Candy May 28, 2011 at 10:35 AM #

      Thanks for sharing your photos and story about your trip! Sounds like this recipe brought back some great memories.

    I didn’t do a separate post on just the rice, but made it earlier this week to serve with Ad Hoc’s Crispy Braised Chicken Thighs with Olives, Lemon and Fennel – it was a great pairing!

  13. anderlani1 May 27, 2011 at 5:03 AM #

    I adored this dish! I could eat it every day. I love how it looks so unassuming until you taste it, and then it’s like–WHAM!–flavor!

    • Candy May 28, 2011 at 10:39 AM #

      Wonderful post. Glad you loved it so much. BTW, I’ve made the Creamy, Cheesy, Garlicky Rice With Spinach (pg 380) a couple of times – though I have to admit, more as a main dish than side. It’s really nice too.

  14. mardi@eatlivetravelwrite May 27, 2011 at 5:11 AM #

    I adored the simplicity of this!

  15. Pam@FromApplesToZucchini May 27, 2011 at 5:28 AM #

    Mine turned into Quinoa Pilaf, but it was delicious!

  16. kmdevone May 27, 2011 at 5:34 AM #

    Pilaf, scmilaf….not crazy over this one but it’s always fun.

    Don’t forget to celebrate our military folks past and present this weekend!

  17. Adriana May 27, 2011 at 5:42 AM #

    I cheated and used the rice cooker ;-)

  18. Create Amazing Meals May 27, 2011 at 5:54 AM #

    A wonderful side dish that we’ll make again & again!

  19. franklyentertaining May 27, 2011 at 6:20 AM #

    I subbed quinoa for the rice. It turned out great – can’t wait to eat it again for lunch today!

  20. Diethood May 27, 2011 at 6:39 AM #

    Thank goodness for easy, but tasty dishes.

  21. MARY May 27, 2011 at 9:02 AM #

    I liked this. Really. I don’t do much Indian cuisine so was skeptical that the cardamom would overpower the Pilaf. Served it and salmon with pesto at a dinner with gal-pals (see my Blog). They all are pretty sophisticated foodies and really enjoyed the combo. Could I add figs? I have left-overs so will go the “cold” route, à la Doris this week-end. This is my fourth week of FFwD and I am having fun. Thank you all.

  22. Guileless Gourmande May 27, 2011 at 11:47 AM #

    Very delicious and healthy too!

  23. Monica May 27, 2011 at 2:01 PM #

    This would be great with so many different dishes!

  24. kitchenarian May 27, 2011 at 3:47 PM #

    Mixed reviews at home, but I enjoyed it.
    Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

  25. Miss Kris Kitchen May 27, 2011 at 5:17 PM #

    We built a meal around this rice…turned out pretty good. I’m interested to see what everyone else did.

  26. laurcl May 27, 2011 at 5:58 PM # – love that these are all turning into new go-to dishes! And love looking at the many creative ways of photographing the “plain white rice”. Inspiring!

  27. bookandspoon May 27, 2011 at 7:46 PM #

    Absolutely loved this! It is on the “will make again” list!

  28. luciacara May 28, 2011 at 4:40 AM #

    I am loving how easy so many of the AMFT recipes are! Especially when your kid makes them for you :):)

    My son’s rice pilaf was great:

    I’m late again. Mea Culpa!

    But here’s my link:

  30. marcella May 29, 2011 at 3:16 PM #

    Really late this time. A fine recipe, but I’m just not a lover of rice. I’ve been impressed with how creative so many of you were with your posts and recipe variations!

  31. thesavourypage May 30, 2011 at 1:42 PM #

    Better late than never. I made it on Friday but didn’t have time to post. I’ve been enjoying it all weekend.

    I’ve missed out on the duck for this week, so caught up on this recipe, instead. I’ve made it a number of times, but never managed to post about it. It’s a great weekday side dish. Here’s the link:
