"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."

  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.

Great recipe. Lots of potential for variations.

Great recipe as it is super flavorful and easy to put together!! The only modification I made was to use orzo pasta and rice half and half just for fun and add chopped zucchini to all the rest ...

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,...
