Rice Pilaf with Raisins and Veggies

Recipe by  

"Surprisingly easy and extremely flavorful. The curry powder does not add an actual curry taste, just a nice rich flavor, so give it a try even if you aren't a curry fan."

Directions

  1. Bring chicken broth to boil in a saucepan over medium-high heat; continue simmering while preparing remaining ingredients.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir celery, onion, green onion white portions, garlic, curry powder, and salt in the hot oil until vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes. Transfer vegetables to a bowl.
  3. Cook and stir rice in the same skillet until lightly toasted, about 3 minutes.
  4. Stir toasted rice into boiling chicken broth. Reduce heat to medium-low; continue simmering until rice is tender and broth is absorbed, about 15 minutes.
  5. Remove rice from heat and stir in raisins, green onion tops, and celery mixture until well blended.

I make this dish all of the time and love it. I'm quite a picky eater so this says a lot :-)

I made this with a blend of white, brown, and wild rice that I had. I also used half golden raisins and half dried cranberries. I substituted in shallots for scallions because that is what I had on hand. I will definitely make this again.

A very good flavor, nothing overpowering, subtle without being boring. Followed recipe exactly as written, except I didn't add the salt. I'm not a fan of curry, but it works well in here. I'll make this again. Thanks for sharing!

Delicious! used the oven method and it turned out perfect. I want to experiment with saffron, slivered toasted almonds and a few more veggies next time. Definitely a keeper!

I didn't have green onions, so I just used a whole regular onion instead of 1/2 of one. I also didn't have fresh celery, so I used frozen mirepoix blend vegetables, which includes diced onions, celery, and carrots). Thennnnn, I forgot to remove the vegetables from the skillet before adding the rice, so I just ended up cooking it all in the same pot. I added a lot more curry powder to give it more of an Indian flavor and slivered almonds at the end.
