  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, until rice is tender. Drain, if necessary, and cool.
  2. While the rice is cooling, place golden raisins 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. In a separate bowl, stir together the brown rice, asparagus, red pepper, apples, and raisins. 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.

I made this for my husband who is Indian....I'm American & we are living in Bombay right now...he didn't find it that great...I wasn't able to find heavy cream so I had to make my own to use...I'm not too sure if this was the cause of it not tasting great...I'd like to think not...I also used basmati rice & I ended up adding some chili powder for spice...

Very unusual and also pretty tasty. I think fresh asparagus would be better than the canned though (less mushy). I love the curry dressing.

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.

Delicious & easy!!! I used basmati & jasmine rice because I don't like brown rice(oh how I wish I did). Absolutely wonderful, perfeclty proportioned flavor but next time I'll definitely switch to fresh asparagus.

Delicious! I did use fresh asparagus, however, steamed them until crisp/tender. And used jasmine rice to be a bit more authentic. After tasting it decided it needed more 'crunch', so I sprinkled some chopped walnuts on top...probably not so authentic, but fabulous none the less! Thank you for a great recipe!

2 words - AWE SOME !!!! As stated in the description it doesn't need to be changed at all to be perfect (for me, anyway!). Love it!!

So good, but I did double the dressing as the taste was too mild for us otherwise.
