Made the rice to go with lamb koftas and spicy tomato sauce - very tasty

Made the rice only last night (should have doubled the quantity of the spices as I made more rice) but still really nice. We had lamb kebabs on the barbecue with peppers and onions with it and as another accompaniment I made the Griddled courgette salad with anchovies & capers, delicious.

Nice and easy and very tasty. I've used the rice as an accompaniment to lots of lamb dishes. Goes really well with lamb and vegetable kebabs.

A tip for travellers: when in Morocco buy the Knorr or Maggi brand stock cubes (available in lamb, beef, chicken, vegetable and fish) in the cardboard packs to take home - the taste is far superior and much less salty than those sold in the UK.
