  1. *Edit: I see you use Basmati rice! I usually use a regular parboiled rice….the grains look really long.

    Oh and I think it is a complete sin not to put shrimp in there. 😉

    I make it how my mother makes it and she's from Au Cap , instead of beans she uses green peas and adds shrimp.

  2. djon-djon is a mushroom. It is hard to get here in NJ but you can find the maggi bullion djon-djon in most supermarkets. Maggi is a brand of boullion used for seasoning.

  3. Hi, I was wondering what type of rice do you use? Jasmine, Basmati, parboiled? 
    Also if using three cups of water how many maggi djon djon cubes do you use?

  4.
