Sizzling Rice Soup

used shrimp instead of chicken and a couple other variations, but the sizzling rice did not turn out. instead of sizzling rice soup, our family called it the rock candy rice soup. hopefully I can find another recipe for this soup, but overall I would not use this one again.
Soup was delicious -- I added chicken and shrimp. Sizzling rice didn't turn out as well. Difficult to get the oil hot enough to puff up the rice and then get out of the pan before burning.
@ Lady Naava, It sounds like your oil was not hot enough when you added the rice. If your oil was hot, it would have puffed and would not have absorbed the oil. As always, you can adjust the seasonings for your own taste on any recipe. :)
I've had this in restaurants, but I found this recipe really time consuming to make, and rather on the bland side. My rice never 'puffed out' in the hot oil as the instructions suggest. A time frame on how long that is supposed to take would be nice. I also didn't like the way the oil made the rice so greasy. Overall, this was a disappointment.
Although this soup takes several steps over the 3 hours, it is very tasty and filling. My husband loved it and was happy that there was plenty for another meal. I was a little short on peas and so added a few baby lima beans. It worked out well.
