1 (10 ounce) can
asparagus tips, drained
red bell pepper, seeded and diced
red apples, cored and diced
salt and pepper to taste
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.
