This is spicier than Uncle Bens but I really liked it. I actually make up about a triple batch and package it without the water or butter. I shake it up to distribute it and scoop out about a cup and cook one cup of the mix at a time or as needed.

I've used a recipe nearly identical to this one several times. The only difference was the amount of turmeric and cumin (mine was 1/2 tsp each). I cut both down to 1/4 after the first attempt. This rice is excellent, but I don't think it tastes like Uncle Ben's. While I have all the spice out, I usually measure up enough for another "batch" and store in a zip bag with my rice to save time the next time I make it.

This was good but does not compare to Uncle Ben's. It's quite spicy and I would recommend that you cut back on the cumin a bit. The tumeric was overpowering so I cut it back to about 1/2 to 3/4 t. Good and will make again.
