    Great! I use brown rice and need to add more water. I added about 1/3 cup extra this time, but it still needed more.

    Needed less water to pressure cook (instant pot), going to try 3:2 water/rice ratio.

    I made this for the first time for a large gathering so I quadrupled the recipe, therefore it wasn't a good test. I had to add 4 additional cups of water to get the right amount of moisture. overall though, it had very good flavor.
