Remarks:

For success with this recipe, it's important that leeks stay a pretty green and are not overcooked, it's more attractive and tastier. That's why the lid is removed when they go in the pan as the last vegetables.

You can use a different kind of rice: apart from Thaï, there's Basmati, Italian, Camargue, etc.
