Yummm, this is different and delicious. I used brown rice, golden raisins, pistachio's (no peanuts right now), light mayo, Splenda for the honey and Ras El Hanout in place of the curry ( because that is in the house right now, lol). What a treat. It was smooth in places and crunchy in other places while being sweetly spiced all at the same time! I wish it was summer and I'd had the melon to put it in. BK this is terrific!
I served this with dinner...DH said what is this @#%? (stuff.) I told him to just eat it as a dessert. He loved it! His plate was licked clean. This has a nice sweet taste with just a slight touch of heat to it. I did use up my pecan bits because I didn't have peanuts. I tagged this because I had some leftover rice to use up. I'm glad I did. Thanks for posting.
I thought this sounded a little strange even for my varied tastes but it turned out so yummy! I followed the directions exactly except I doubled the curry powder. It could be a side dish or a dessert. I would say it makes more than 2 servings...more like 4-6. Thank you for the wonderful recipe Baby Kato! Made for 1-2-3 Hit Wonders.
