What a burst of flavors. I am not a fan of curry but I love this dish. Got this recipe off the net a long time ago but I am not sure where. Be sure to make the brown rice with the curry.

This was delicious! I did not have any coconut milk, so I mixed a little almond extract and sugar into a small can of evaporated milk..I'm pretty proud of myself for figuring that out! The recipe was still good without apricots in the rice. Instead of cilantro, I used chopped fresh parsley.
