No MSG for us and it was still delicious. I opted to use evaporated milk which made it thick and creamy. The ingredients melded well and it was great with baked pork chops and garlic green beans. Very nice!

I made this a while ago and forgot to review it. I used orange capsicum as I had no green on hand and also left out the M.S.G. I used the coconut milk version, although next time I think I will try the evaporated milk. We did really enjoy this rice, it came out with a little bit of crust on top which made for a nice texture. The flavors really complimented the rice, which made for a lovely side dish to our meal. The hardest part of this recipe is to cook the rice, so it is a winner all around!
