Curry Flavored Rice

Curry Flavored Rice

This is a simple rice dish that I usually prepare when I cook Japanese Curry (recipe here). It is easy to prepare and taste particularly good when wrapped in an omelet.

Curry Flavored Rice

Serves: 2 to 4
Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 25 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon Butter or Oil
  • 1 large Shallot – finely chopped
  • 1 large clove Garlic – finely chopped
  • 1 cup Rice – rinsed and drained (I use Basmati Rice)
  • 1 cube of Japanese Curry Sauce Mix
  • 2 cups Water or Stock
  • A small pinch of Salt

Directions:

  1. Heat a pot over high heat and add butter. Once melted, add shallot & garlic and sauté for few minutes until lightly golden in color.
  2. Add rice and sauté for about a minute. Add salt, Curry Sauce Mix and stir till dissolved by adding little water if required.
  3. Add water and bring it to a boil. Reduce heat to very low, cover pot with a tight lid and cook undisturbed for 20 minutes.
  4. Fluff up the rice with a fork, remove from heat and serve.

Note:

  • If using stock, you might not need to add salt.
  • To make wrapped omelet, use about 2 large eggs per omelet, season with salt & pepper and 1 teaspoon of milk or cream. Cook just until the egg is set but little wet. Fill rice in middle of omelet, wrap and serve with prepared curry sauce.
