I used to make this quite often when I lived in Australia. Not sure where the recipe came from? If memory serves me correctly, it was a recipe card from Woolworth’s Grocery store. Very yummy rice dish!
2 teaspoons Olive Oil
1 Onion, chopped
1 Zuchinni, chopped
1 Carrot, chopped
1 Red Pepper, chopped
1 Tablespoon Curry Powder
1 teaspoon Cumin
1/4 cup Chopped Dried Apricots
1/4 cup Raisins
1 can (540ml) Chick Peas, drained and well rinsed
1 1/2 cups Long Grain Rice, uncooked
3 cups Vegetable Broth
Heat oil in large saucepan.
Add onion and saute for 3 mins, stirring often.
Add zuchinni, carrot, red pepper, curry powder and cumin; stir.
Add uncooked rice, stir to coat.
Add vegetable broth, chick peas, dried apricots and raisins, stir, bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer for 25 – 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
I served these with Falafel, Sauteed Spinach, Tomato Chutney and Tomato Raita.
