  1. Heat grapeseed oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir onion and garlic until tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in rice, curry powder, garam masala, and cumin seeds. Continue to cook and stir until rice is toasted, 1 to 2 minutes more.
  2. Pour broth into rice mixture and season with salt; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and cook until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed, 45 to 50 minutes.


  • Cook's Note:
  • I like Pensey's Hot Curry, but sweet curry will work fine.

Made as directed. Served it with sautéed veggies on top. Lots of flavor, good combination of spices. I searched for a brown rice based meal that I could serve for "meatless friday" (our new thin...

The perfect vegan dish! I added a cup of frozen peas and carrots to the recipe, simply delicious.

Very good. I also used Penzey hot curry adding a bit extra plus I tossed in a handful of raisins to cook along with the rice. Worked great. Next time I'll mix raisins and dried cranberries in...

The new family favorite.
