A delicious and aromatic rice dish with garlic, cumin, curry powder and chilli. This is a meal in itself or a great side dish.
Altered ingredient amounts. This is insanely hot. Far too much chilli powder for my taste. I have reduced this to 1 tsp and replaced the soy sauce (which made the recipe brown rather than a nice curry yellow colour) with 2 tsp Turmeric. This is a healthier option too. I also added a can of rinsed sweet corn at the end and stirred it through until hot. You could add frozen peas or chopped carrot when you add the rice. - 11 Apr 2011
Used different ingredients. This rice tasted pretty good, but the mix of curry powder and soy sauce didn't make for a very appealing colour. I would recommend omitting the soy sauce and adding some turmeric and/or saffron for a really "curry" colour. Also mix in some chopped onion and peas for both flavour and colour. - 29 Sep 2008
This is yummy and warming on those cold, wet, wintery days. Ideal as a side dish or on its own for lunch. I did find that a tablespoon of chilli is insanely hot and have reduced this to 1 tsp. I also added a can of sweet corn at the end of the cooking time and replaced the soy sauce with 2 tsp Turmeric to keep it nice and yellow. (and healthier) - 11 Apr 2011
