  1. Melt butter in a large skillet placed over medium-high heat. Add the onion and barley; cook, stirring frequently, until the onion begins to soften, about 5 minutes. Stir in the allspice, turmeric, curry powder, salt, and black pepper. Pour in the chicken broth, and bring to a simmer.
  2. Cover skillet with lid, and reduce heat to low; simmer until the barley is tender, about 30 to 40 minutes. Fluff the pilaf with a fork, and gently stir in the slivered almonds and raisins.

This looked great, but we found it disappointing - bland and boring. If you do make it, double the spices. You can also cut the butter to 2 tsp. oil.

excellent and so simple! Afraid that it wouldn't be enough curry flavor,so I added one tsp. Perfect. Also didn't have pearl barley and pot barley worked great. Thank you

Absolutely delicious! I did, however make a few changes that I learned from the comments of other cooks on here (THANK YOU)! To start with, I used a 1/8 cup more butter, added garlic, carrots ...

Doubled the curry, halved the allspice, cut out almonds and raisins. Used regular barley so it took a bit longer to cook but it was well worth it. This was the first time I had attempted to ma...

With a few changes, I loved it!! Sauteed everything in olive oil; doubled the curry - could even take more. I'm not crazy about raisins and BF doesn't like almonds so I took the suggestion of an...

What is old is new again! I just got a pressure cooker--now completely safe with 3 safeguards--they don't blow up, no matter how hard you try! The cooking time is at least halved for most thin...

Absolutely delicious! I doubled the amount of curry, but otherwise this had the perfect combination of spices!

Made this with non-fat/low sodium broth, doubled the curry powder, used a smidge over the 1/2 tsp. salt (kosher) and ground pepper. It was absolutely delish and so easy to prepare! WINNER!
