Arabian Inspired Curry Rice


After an early lesson at university – finally it´s weekend feeling 😀 and I had time to cook some family lunch this afternoon (we watched the royal wedding on TV 😀 such a nice couple! I wish them all the best :D) 😀 On Thursday I decided to prepare ARABIAN INSPIRED CURRY RICE inspired by a recipe I found on the Lebensbaum website a few weeks ago (the link is in the bottom) 😀 The dish is actually quite easy and really quick to make but also very nourishing and delicate and perfect for the whole fam. 😀 I like the fruity, coconutty taste together with the spices, raisins and cashews! It´s simply a great match 😀 I served it with fruits and veggies 😀

2 serves

You need :

  • 1 cup parboiled rice or brown rice
  • 1 tbs coconut oil
  • 1/2 onion, finely chopped
  • A touch of garlic
  • 1 tsp curcuma
  • 1 tsp curry powder
  • 1 1 tsp ginger powder (but preferably fresh ginger)
  • 1 cup coconut water
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 172 cup cashews, roasted
  • Spices (caraway, coriander, cardamom, cinnamon, pepper, herbs)
  • A sprinkle lemon juice
  • Slices of orange (Optional)
  • Side dish: mango, tomatoes, grapes, coconut, … (you can also use other fruits and veggies)

Start heating the oil in a sauce pan, add onion, garlic, curcuma, curry and ginger and cook for about 1 minute before adding the uncooked rice. Stir until the oil and the rice are well combined. Next, pour in the liquid and cook on medium heat until the rice is done. In the meantime, prepare the side dish and roast the cashews 😀 When the rice is cooked, remove the pan from heat and  add in the spices, raisins and cashews and sprinkle the lemon juice. Ready to be served 😀
