Curry Rice: A Step-by-Step Recipe

Step 1:

Rinse the rice in advance so that the drained water becomes clear. You can soak in clean water for several hours or at night. Heat a deep pan or stewpan, melt the butter and add 1 tsp. curry. Preheat seasoning for 1 minute. Add carrots grated on a coarse grater and fry for 3-5 minutes.

Step 2:

Cut a tomato (you can peel it), bell pepper and zucchini in small cubes (if the zucchini is young, you can use directly with the skin). Add to carrots and fry, stirring, for another 5-7 minutes.

Step 3:

Add washed rice to vegetables and fry it for 3-5 minutes, stirring so that it absorbs the juice of vegetables from curry.

Step 4:

Pour rice with 2 cups (600 ml) of hot water, add the remaining 2 tsp. curry, salt, pepper for pungency (if necessary). Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, another 15-20 minutes until tender. We try rice: if ready, turn it off and insist another 10 minutes.
