"We are a rice eating family and it was nice to find a new rice dish. We successfully cooked this per the recipe in a rice cooker. But next time we will cut back on the water added. We made spice mix and the sauce from scratch. The Goya mixes suggested contain MSG as a first ingredient."- Fatherofseven
