Turmeric Orange Ginger Infused Rice

35 mins (prep 15, cooking 20)
16 ingredients

I made up this recipe from the only turmeric rice recipe I found on Zaar. It was made totally on the fly, and turned out delicious. I hope you feel the same. Rather than writing a review on the original recipe I thought it better to post a different one, since I had made several changes, instead of singling them out in my review of the first one. The mint adds just a hint of freshness to the rice, the mango a small sweetness along with the orange water, the toasted pine nuts add great crunch and texture, and the ginger/garlic marry well with all other flavors without being overpowering.
