This is a very tasty brown rice recipe salad. Mmm!! Very different and tasty served with barbeque meats. I don't think this need to be changed at all, it is so perfect the way it is.

  • While the rice is cooling, place golden raisins in a bowl, and fill with enough hot water to cover. Let soak for 20 minutes to plump. Drain.

  • In a medium bowl, whip cream until soft peaks form. Fold in curry powder, lemon juice, salt and pepper. In a separate bowl, stir together the brown rice, asparagus, red pepper, apples, and raisins. Fold into the curry cream, and chill until serving.

I used basmati rice and sour cream (and added less lemon juice as a result) instead of heavy cream and this was really tasty. I definitely recommend fresh or frozen asparagus as opposed to canned. If you can't get it then substitute another fresh veggie like green beans or zucchini/yellow squash etc. I love pretty much anything Indian inspired but I'd never thought to add a creamy dressing to my rice before.

I made this for my husband who is Indian....I'm American & we are living in Bombay right now...he didn't find it that great...I wasn't able to find heavy cream so I had to make my own to use...I'm not too sure if this was the cause of it not tasting great...I'd like to think not...I also used basmati rice & I ended up adding some chili powder for spice...

Very unusual and also pretty tasty. I think fresh asparagus would be better than the canned though (less mushy). I love the curry dressing. Read More

Delicious & easy!!! I used basmati & jasmine rice because I don't like brown rice(oh how I wish I did). Absolutely wonderful perfeclty proportioned flavor but next time I'll definitely switch to fresh asparagus. Read More

Delicious! I did use fresh asparagus however steamed them until crisp/tender. And used jasmine rice to be a bit more authentic. After tasting it decided it needed more 'crunch' so I sprinkled some chopped walnuts on top...probably not so authentic but fabulous none the less! Thank you for a great recipe! Read More

So good but I did double the dressing as the taste was too mild for us otherwise. Read More
