Takes time, but it's worth it
My family thought this was very good. We have a spice averse kid- we used 2 serrano peppers, and it was too hot for her. The rest of the family tolerates heat better, and we only felt a mild tingle. I thought the flavor of this was great, though I bumped up the garam masala to 2 tsp. The rice boiled very quickly, making craters after only 3 minutes. I was worried that it was cooking too quickly, so I did not boil it for the full 5-8 minutes. It was fully cooked after being in the oven for 40 minutes, but it was soaking for more like 30 minutes instead of 20, so the soaking time may have an impact on the cooking time. The finished dish was wonderful- the cashews added great flavor and texture, the mustard greens were not at all bitter or overpowering, and the raisins added a great sweetness. This recipe takes a while to prep, and it's not a simple one-pot clean up, but I thought it was fantastic, and we'll be making it again.
Pros: Tasty, filling, flavorful
Cons: Uses several pans, time consuming, too spicy for some
