This rice dish is a wonderful combination of sweet and spicy.If you like a mild curry flavour use less curry powder.This is excellent with lamb or beef, but would go well with other meats too.

This was very good, we really liked the apricot and raisin with the curry. I scaled this to serve four and it worked quite well. I think next time I would leave out the almonds, personal preference. Thanks for posting this, Carrie Ann.

You won't want to stop eating it! This recipe is very close to what I was looking for. I added some red pepper because I like mine hot. I served it with Pan-seared Tilapia with Chili Lime Butter #109163 and Indian Cucumber Raita #120649. We had Strawberry Jello Pie #108184 for dessert.
