If you're tired of plain white rice, here's a recipe to try soon. The basmati rice has a nutty flavor that blends well with curry powder.
2 tablespoons reduced-calorie margarine
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 1/2 cups uncooked basmati rice
1 teaspoon curry powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 (10 1/2-ounce) cans low-sodium chicken broth
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
1/4 teaspoon grated lemon rind
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
How to Make It
Melt margarine in a saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and garlic; sauté 5 minutes. Add rice and curry powder; cook, stirring constantly, 1 minute. Add salt, broth, and water; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. Remove from heat; stir in parsley, lemon rind, and lemon juice. Cover and let stand 10 minutes; fluff with a fork.
