    This is good. I think like Kittencal it would be even better with some large garlic cloves crushed in with the onions. I admit I didn't soak for 2 hours (maybe 30 minutes) and this was so quick to put together! I used white Basmati rice, homemade chicken stock made from the chicken I used here, salted butter, sea salt, Recipe #104344 which is a sweet curry powder as we don't like spicy. Instead of sultanas I used yellow raisins because I didn't have any. I would like to try this again with the garlic mentioned. Made for Zaar Cookbook Tag.
