This also works with substituting sunflower seeds for the pine nuts. I've also tried adding a can of sliced water chestnuts. We like it a little on the spicy side, so you may want to cut back on the curry and red pepper a little if you want it mild.

This is great, I used no red pepper flakes as DH does not like hot at all. He is not much a fan of curry, so I used about 3/4 of a teaspoon. Cooks fast and great when you do not know what to cook for the evening.
