Well hello there Iggles! Time for another newbie cooking adventure with a really easy rice recipe that is my favorite now!
Ok, so, story: I love rice. Like, I have to be out of the kitchen when someone is preparing rice because I’ll eat all of it once it finishes cooking. Another thing I really like is curry. We have several (unfortunately small) things of curry in our cupboard. We have to stock up because sometimes Wal-Mart runs out of it here (don’t judge, we live in a super small town where Wal-Mart is basically the only option). Now, I’ve had curry rice several times before and figured, I need to make some! Best combo! I located a recipe and voilà – yummy curry rice. It’s actually called rice pilaf, just FYI.
Anywho, here is the quick recipe:
|1/4 cup water1 (14.5 ounce) can chicken broth1 cup long grain rice
1 teaspoon curry powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
|1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon1/8 teaspoon paprika2 pinches ground cloves
1 small onion, coarsely chopped
|1.||Bring water and chicken broth to a boil.|
|2.||Combine rice, curry powder, garlic powder, cinnamon, paprika, and cloves in a bowl; stir to mix. Add spiced rice and onion to the boiling broth. Cover and cook until rice is tender, 20 to 25 minutes.|
Then it is time to eat the rice and enjoy! Something I do is used pre-minced onion instead of fresh onion because when I make this, I’m being pretty lazy. I usually just eat this as a meal itself, but I am sure you can pair it with different meals.
One thing I highly suggest is making sure to check on it continually. I didn’t get a photograph because, “OH MY GOD HURRY HURRY HURRY” was going through my head, but the first time I made this, the rice did something weird and started to look like it was growing to form a curry rice mushroom. It was hilarious, and now I double check everything and watch it like a hawk. And when I saw watch, I don’t mean sit in the kitchen and read a book … not like I’ve ever done that … *ahem*
Well, what do you guys think?? Does it sound good?? Let me know if you try it!
