Thai Jasmine is our favorite. It’s flavorful and cooks up really quickly.
Because we eat it so often I like to play up with different flavors to give it a slight twist. My favorite rice is a great example of that.
Nothing crazy and nothing overly powerful. Just some seasonings and a little punch of freshness.
I had some cilantro that needed used up and a lime that needed some attention, so into the rice they went!
I cook all my rice with broth but you can most definitely use water if you prefer.
Andrea’s Curry Rice with Lime and Cilantro
- 1C Jasmine Rice
- 2C Broth (I used pork)
- 1/2tsp Curry Powder
- 1/2tsp Soy Sauce
- 3 Green Onions, chopped
- 1 Large Handful of Cilantro, chopped
- 1 Lime, zested and cut in half
In a medium sized sauce pot, heat the broth until it starts to simmer. Add in the curry powder and soy sauce along with the rice. Stir and cover reducing heat so that the mixture stays at a simmer. Cook until the rice is done, about 7 minutes or so. Turn off heat, add in the the juice of half the lime along with the zest and cilantro. Add in the chopped green onion. Stir, cover and let sit for about 2 minutes.
Remove from heat, serve and enjoy!
Both of us found this rice light and fresh. The curry powder gives it a lovely yellow color, that combined with the green onions and herbs, makes this dish easy on the eyes. It went perfect with some fish and roasted veggies we had that evening.
Aside from a little extra prep work with chopping onions and cilantro, which can be done while the rice simmers, this dish is quick and easy to put together.
Next time you have rice, give it a little punch with some fresh herbs and seasonings!
Have fun guys, and remember, always play with your food!
