Curried Rice Pilaf

In this rice dish, green onions give great color, raisins bring a touch of sweetness and almonds add crunch. I think you'll agree the mild curry flavor pleases all palates. —Lee Bremson, Kansas City, Missouri

    Loved this recipe. I will be making this again. The only change was to increase the curry powder to a tsp and only simmer for 20 minutes. Thanks for a great recipe.

    This is fantastic! Went well with backed chicken and sauted zucchini! No need to wait for the holidays.

    Easy to make & my family loved it. I substituted dried apricots and pecans for the almonds and raisins because I had them on hand
