This recipe is very similar to one given to me a few years ago, from someone in Saudi Arabia, for a dish called Cupsa (it's one of my favorites). The main differences are that my cupsa recipe c...

I gave this a 3 out of 5 - curry flavor was nice but it lacked something - not enough taste for us. Was definitely quick and easy to make on the first try.

This was ok. It was easy, but I'll make some changes next time. First of all, I thought the recipe called for too much curry. Secondly, I think it needs something sweet in it to lighten the curr...

Not bad, very easy to make without much cleanup required. Note that the instructions mentioned adding thyme, but it wasn't listed in the ingredients. I added a tsp, but should have added more,...

excellent quick meal

I had to give one star cause it does not allow me to give less. We do not put curry in pelau. This is a one-pot dish, yes, but it takes a whole lot more effort and has a whole lot more flavour,...

The chicken came out very tough, but the rice was delicious. Next time I will make it with boneless chicken pieces, and add a little coconut milk. Definitely has potential.
