Curried Rice

Dont forget to enter my book giveaway!

I mentioned in an earlier post that I would be giving you this recipe for Curried Rice.  This recipe is from one of my favorite cookbooks, The Gourmet Cookbook.  I love Curry both the flavors it adds to the dish and the aroma that fills the house when you use it.  This rice is very simple and makes a great side dish or add some veges and/or a protein and make an awesome rice bowl. Enjoy!

3 tablespoons olive oil
1 medium onion, finely chopped
3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
4 teaspoons curry powder
2 cup of long grain rice
3 1/4 cups water
2 teaspoons salt

What you do:
Heat oil in a sauce pan over moderately low heat and saute onions and garlic until softened, 8-10 minutes.  Add the curry powder and rice and cook, stirring for 1 minute.  Add water and salt and bring to a boil, uncovered, without stirring, until steam holes appear in the top of rice and grains on top look dry, about 8 minutes.
Reduce heat to low and cover pan for another 15 minutes.
Remove from heat and let rice stand, covered, for 5 minutes,  Fluff with fork.

  6. Sounds and looks GREAT! I have been craving some curry chicken personally, lol!

  7. This looks great when I'm making Indian but none of the dishes are actually a curry (e.g., butter chicken, madras, or korma).

    I generally use turmeric, cloves and peas (sometimes I'll add cardamom) when I serve a curry.

  8. curries and other Indian food are quite common here in the UAE.
