You could always use chicken stock instead of water.

We put turmeric in sometimes.

We use turmeric, or saffron, even a couple of drops of truffle oil.

Cajun seasoning

A teaspoon of powdered stock is good, green herb is nice and vegetarian friendly (just in case they are since you haven't said). Add a bit of butter too for a bit more flavour and to help avoid rice sticking.

It's nice to make a pliau rice in the rice cooker, nice flavours. This is a nice recipe I often use.

I don't know you get this there. You must do in Asian shops but Hainanese Chicken and rice is very nice made in the rice cooker. If you can get the paste it is a easy meal to make. My go to meal when I am short on time. Add washed rice then add stock or water to just under the mark specified ( I prefer stock and I add a little less liquid as chicken gives some liquid too so makes rice soggy) add chicken pieces on top. Turn on rice cooker and walk away. Serve with sliced cucumbers, sweet soy and some chili, garlic and ginger paste. Yum.

If serving rice with a curry or a chili, I add a little turmeric and a sprinkle of cumin seeds, still adding salt of course. I must experiment with adding coconut milk for Thai curries.
