This is amazing!! I wasn't sure about the curry since we do not eat it usually, but it made the rice so good! Made as is and left the mushroom pieces bigger so DH could pick them out; and he ate them, so added bonus! Going into my Best of 2010 cookbook!! Made for PRMR.

A great rice dish! The veggies and cranberries were wonderful additions. The curry powder was a surprising, yet well fitting, ingredient for the pilaf. It all came together quite nicely. Thanks for sharing!
