P.S. I didn't want to buy that turmeric spice because it was $5, and once I got there I realized that the spice made the rice really yellow, so I was kind of glad mine burned because it would have been fairly obvious that I skimped out on the turmeric; I am not sure if it added taste or just color. Anyway. Post a recipe because the blog is dying and it is so sad : (
