First, get your rice cooker out. If you don’t have one, go and buy one! It’s seriously the best thing since sliced gluten free bread. Of course you can always use a saucepan, water and the stove-top and it will work just as well, but then you have to have some knowledge of how to cook rice, and it really helps if you don’t forget about it and head off to the arena to ride a horse. Enter the rice cooker.
Cook as much rice as you like. We’ve done this recipe with black rice, red rice and our very favourite basmati brown rice. We get our basmati brown rice from 2brothersfoods.com. It’s delicious, and way better for you than white rice.
If you assemble it all in a large Tupperware (or whatever they are now called) all you’ll have to do at this point is give it a good shake and you’ll know whether you need to add more of any of the ingredients (come on, we all know you’re being stingy on the sultanas).
Then sprinkle over some curry powder, salt and pepper, give it another shake (or stir) and you’re ready to go. It’s seriously good. We had this for Christmas dinner along with Mango salad, roast potato salad and lentil salad. While everyone else had food babies after Christmas dinner – so did we!
