Curried and Herbed Basmati Rice

Recipe by Citruholic
READY IN: 30mins




  • Heat medium 3-quart pot over medium-high heat with oil. Add minced garlic. Cook for 2 minutes. Don't burn garlic. Lightly brown.
  • Add rice. Constantly toss and stir to coat rice with garlic and oil and lightly toast rice.
  • Add chicken stock, curry powder and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and cover on simmer til rice has absorbed liquid (about 20 minutes).
  • During last 5 minutes of cooking rice, remove lid, add butter, rosemary and parsley. Stir. Recover.
  • If liquid is absorbed, reduce heat to low and keep warm. If rice appears dry, add small amount of olive oil. I recommend doing this anyway, as the Extra Virgin Olive Oil adds wonderful flavor.
  • Just before serving, add lemon zest to pot and toss to combine all ingredients. Salt and pepper to taste.
