Sticky-Pot Rice and Fish with Bananas

I'm planning on making Mark Bittman's Sticky-Pot Rice with Yogurt and Spices that ran in his Minimalist column in the NY Times about a month or so ago -- basically, you parboil the rice like pasta, then toss it with some oil, yogurt, lime juice, curry, then finish it as you would normally cook rice. Any chance any of you tried this? It seems unorthodox enough to either be a raging success or just a bad idea. The goal is that you get a lovely rice crust on the bottom of the pot, something my grandmother was always able to do with her rice and red beans, and which I've never been able to accomplish. I'm looking for reviews of this recipe, I guess -- worth it? Tips? Thoughts?

Also, I found a tilapia with bananas and macadamia nuts recipe a while back (in an Atlanta newspaper, perhaps?), but I haven't been able to find it on the internet, anywhere, recently. I'm hoping to make that tonight, too, but with cod and almonds. I know it's simple and straightforward, but was hoping maybe one of you had the recipe -- it involved dredging the fish in seasoned flour, then cooking it quickly. I don't know what, exactly, one does with the bananas, but am planning on just sauteeing them in a little butter...

Sorry this is long and rambly, but I've had some disasters with Mr. Bittman's recipes, and thought y'all might offer tips or words of advice. TIA!
