    1. Combine the rice and water in a saucepan. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for about 30 minutes, or until rice is tender. Drain if necessary, and cool.
    2. While the rice is cooling, place sultanas in a bowl and fill with enough hot water to cover. Let soak for 20 minutes to plump. Drain.
    3. In a medium bowl whip cream until soft peaks form. Fold in curry powder, lemon juice, salt and pepper.
    4. In a separate bowl, stir together the brown rice, asparagus, capsicum, apples and sultanas. Fold into the curry cream and chill until serving.

    I used basmati rice and sour cream (and added less lemon juice as a result) instead of heavy cream and this was really tasty. I definitely recommend fresh or frozen asparagus as opposed to canned. If you can't get it then substitute another fresh veggie like green beans or zucchini/yellow squash, etc. I love pretty much anything Indian inspired but I'd never thought to add a creamy dressing to my rice before.  -  26 Nov 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Very unusual and also pretty tasty. I think fresh asparagus would be better than the canned though (less mushy). I love the curry dressing.  -  17 May 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This is a wonderful recipe!! I used it for a family dinner party and it was a hit. I ended up having to write this recipe down for four of my family members.  -  06 Feb 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
