Just happened I had all the ingredients that this recipe asked for! My husband and I we both liked it, served it with a cucumber raita and some leftover naan bread from the day before, absolutely delicious! Followed the recipe mostly, and I added extra 1/2 cup of raisins before baking; I used brown rice, so the vegetable and rice mixture was baked in the oven for about 40 minutes, then the potato cubes became not crunchy any more and the rice was perfectly cooked too. I think even you use white rice, you may check after the first 20 minutes, if seems still not quite cooked on both rice and vegetables, pop into the oven, give another 10 to 20 minutes! A easy, simple and tasty recipe to have varieties of vegetables all at once!
