rice is another regular in our house, we love it and eat it often. this spiced rice dish is delicious served either on its own or with something else of your choice, I love it with vegetable korma!. this is my entry for this months Ravishing Rice, Monthly Mingle, a fun Monthly event started by Meeta and this month hosted by Nags at Edible Garden.
there's really no recipe to speak of. you just need to boil (or steam) 2 cups of rice I put a bit of curry powder in the water as it gives a nice flavour without being too spicy. I love spicy but OH and my daughter don't, ggrrr, ther's no accounting for some tastes is there ;)
fry some mustard seeds, some cumin seeds, some cardomom pods and a bit of curry until fragrant. add a small diced onion, and a small diced red capsicum. fry until just starting to soften. add cooled rice and heat gently stiring constantly. add toasted flaked almonds & sultana's and continue to stir until heated through. fluff up rice and serve!
