So easy and tastes fab. Left out the tomato and substituted sweet corn as others had suggested. I also added the curry powder when frying the vegetables. Would make again for sure.

A lovely tasty rice recipe. For something a bit special add muscles and prawns to the cooked rice. Scrummy on a buffet table.

great quick savoury rice recipe, the only thing I do differently from the above is fry the curry powder off with the vegetables before adding stock to avoid that powdery feel of uncooked spices, it also releases more of the flavour of the spice.

lovely curried rice dish, did for a BBQ, perfect to eat hot or cold as a side/salad dish.

Was looking for a savoury rice dish that WASN'T out of a packet! This was exactly what I was looking for...soooo yummy! I left out the tomatoes and used hot chilli powder in addition to curry powder as I like spice! YUM!

I added in sweetcorn in place of the pepper as I forgot to pick one up. I was really impressed; always made a mess of rice before so I tend to stay clear, but this turned out great!! Will be a definite fixture in my diet now!!

Excellet easy recipe to make, although I put a bit less curry powder in to make it more family friendly!

I substituted sweetcorn for the tomato and added a packet of cooked king prawns and a cooked sliced chicken breast to make it a family meal for 3. Some mango chilli chutney as a side. My hard to please 14 year old proclaimed it "delicious"
