Curried Rice With Raisins

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by TheDiva1959

My friend Cara and I needed a side dish one night and all I could think of was a curry dish I'd had at a local (Manhattan) Tai resturant. I could not find anything that was exactly right in the recipes already posted so I made this up. It was soooooooo good I now have to make it everytime we have dinner!!

3 stars as written, 5 stars tweaked a lot! This recipe uses too much curry powder but if it is cut down significantly, I used 1/2 tsp of Recipe #104344 and stirred into the rice before cooking as after it just breaks up the rice grains. I did not add pepper to ours and used white Basmati rice and dark Thompson raisins. I won't make this again.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook rice in 2 cups of water. Basmati rice is hard to ruin. It cooks fast and is exactly 2 to one ratio water to rice. 1 cup uncooked Basmati will take 10 to 20 minutes to cook.
  2. While rice is cooking melt butter in skillet.
  3. Chop onion and saute in butter until translucent.
  4. Add curry, raisins, salt and pepper, cover and simmer on low heat until rice is finished or about 5 minutes.
  5. If rice pan is large enough, mix it around with a wooden spoon to losen then pour mixture in skillet over the top. If not, transfer rice and curry mix to a larger bowl.
  6. Mix well and enjoy.
