I want to flavour my rice. What flavours would make them awsome? Im already using chili powder in the lentils going on the rice so don't really want to use that as it may be a bit samey.

I always put garlic salt and turmeric in the water with a little bit of vegan margarine. It makes it taste a lot like chicken broth.

Or, if you want to put some sauce on plain rice, I like a mix of a little soy sauce, fresh garlic, ginger, and peanut sauce. I usually water it down a touch otherwise it's too salty.

Basil. But then again, what doesn't basil make better?

"chili powder already" narrows it down. I would add turmeric, cumin, garlic and onion and a dash paprika, and a little dried cilantro (the dried stuff is very weak; won't make it tastes like there's still dish washing liquid on your plate like a bunch of fresh cilantro will)

Sometime my wife gets saffron for free 'cause a friend of her father sells the stuff. Anyway, I like that with rice, but not really with any other spice, except maybe onion.

Anyway ..

'Star Anese' is good in rice that is to be served with chinese food.

Roasted then crushed coriander seeds work well in rice that is to be served with Indian style curry.

My favourite rice is:

Heat some oil in a frying pan. When it's hot add cumin seeds (1 tsp) and black mustard seeds (1 tsp). When the cumin seeds become fragrant and the mustard seeds finish popping, add a pinch of hing/asafoetida (optional as it can be hard to find), and 5-6 curry leaves. Fry for a few seconds then add cooked rice, a tsp of turmeric and salt to taste.

As this rice is tasty but not chilli-hot, it goes well with a spicey wet dish like dal or curry.

Not a spice but I love my rice with margarine and nutritional yeast. Nutritional yeast is great on other carbs too like pasta.

I'm not a fan of cumin. I put it on the rice to see what it tasted like on that but i ended up throwing it away. The lemon pepper thing was gold pure gold, thanks for that advice.
