This curried rice mix is an interesting complement for plain chicken or pork.
Layer the ingredients in the order given in a 1 1/2-cup jar.
Attach this to the Jar:
In a medium saucepan bring the water to a boil. Add the rice mix. Cover and reduce the heat to a simmer for 20 minutes.
Mix equal quantities together, and store in an airtight container. Boil as for rice or spaghetti, BUT add 3 times the volume of water, as this mix is very thirsty. Pre-soaking might cut down the cooking time, but I haven't tried it yet.
When cooked, add powdered cumin, if liked, to enhance the smoky flavour. Other spices according to taste: chilli, cayenne pepper, smoked paprika.
This mix is for rice dishes where rice is the main ingredient. It is too flavourful for curries, etc.
Suggested uses: rice salads, rice-cakes, adding flavour to bean-burgers and, if you are a good bread-baker, to home-made bread-dough.
