I've always found home-made steamed rice just doesn't cut it with a proper curry. For an experience closer to your local curry house proper pilau rice is required.

Preparation

  1. Boil water in kettle
  2. Heat pan
  3. Add spices for around 30 second to the hot pan, until you can smell them or they start to crackle
  4. Add the oil and rice and stir in well
  5. Turn heat off and leave for 2 minutes
  6. Carefully add water and stir thoroughly, it may well boil violently to start with
  7. Turn heat back on to low and put a lid on
  8. Cook for 12 mins on low
  9. Turn heat off and leave to steam with lid on for at least 12 mins
  10. Serve the rice when curry is ready, leave the lid on to keep it hot in the meantime
