When the rice is boiling,reserve about 1/4 cup of the hot liquid to use with two of the eggs so they do not scramble on you in the recipe for later.
2
When the rice is finished cooking,add in the egg and water mixture along with the spices,cheese and herbs,mix well and refrigerate for 20 minutes.Hint:If the mixture is too wet,add some bread crumb to it to tighten it up.
