Coconut Curry Rice
30 mins (prep 10, cooking 20)
17 ingredients
4-6 servings
Fragrant yellow rice with a touch of curry and spices, cooked in coconut milk and topped with roasted peanuts and fresh coriander (cilantro). Scrumptious! Serve hot or at room temperature, on it's own or as a side to satay chicken or vegetarian cuisine. Inspired by a Zatarain's recipe. Note: This is not an overly hot and spicy dish, as written, but very delicious. We like it light to medium spicy so the other ingredients' delicate flavors aren't lost in the heat; it's just a matter of taste. If you like more heat and spice, adjust the seasonings as needed (you can use hot madras curry, and hot peppers for the mild ones). Enjoy!
