Maple Pecan Crusted Curry Rice

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Judy-Jude

I love rice and curry was on the list for the challenge and I wanted to come up with something different. First I thought about adding the pecans into the rice mixture, then I decided to try something different by making a pecan, butter mixture for the top and finish it off in the oven. The addition of maple syrup was added at the last minute. I thought that the sweet would be a nice touch and it was perfect! This can be served as a main dish or side dish or other catagories.

I have to do a split here I enjoyed this while my DH wouldn`t eat it after his first bite. I used turkey stock made it smell like thanksgiving while preparing. I think if we skipped the cheese this would be a 10 star recipe. I liked the kick the cayenne gave this dish.
