Curried Rice with Green Beans Recipe

curried riceThe combination of garlic, onion, and curry powder gives this simple dish classic Indian flavor. It is easy to prepare and only takes about 40 minutes from start to finish. I used green beans but you can substitute your favorite steamed vegetable instead.

1 tbsp olive oil
1 large handful of fresh green beans
1 1/2 cups basmati rice
3 cloves garlic, diced
1 yellow onion, diced
1 cube of vegetable bouillon
1 tspn curry powder
4 cups of water

  1. Using a steamer, steam the green beans so that they are tender but still crisp, about 5 - 7 minutes. Set aside for later.
  2. In a small saucepan, heat 1/2 cup of water over medium heat. When the water is warm, add the vegetable bouillon cube and dissolve. Remove from heat.
  3. In a large pot, add the olive oil and heat over medium heat.
  4. Add the onions, curry powder, and garlic. Cook for a few minutes until the onions become clear and translucent.
  5. Stir in the basmati rice, the vegetable bouillon, and another 3 1/2 cups of water.
  6. Bring the mixture to a boil and then reduce the heat to low and cover the pot.
  7. Cook for 30 to 40 minutes without removing the pot's lid.
  8. Pour the rice into a serving bowl and mix with the green beans.
