1. In a small pot, bring the water just to the boiling point over a medium-high flame. 

2. Remove the water from the heat and pour it into a mixing bowl.

3. Sort the rice and remove any small rocks. Add the rice to the water and let it soak for 30 minutes to 1 hour.

4. While rice sits, rinse and chop the tomato, green pepper and onion.

5. Once the rice has soaked, add the vegetables, olive oil, curry powder and salt. Mix well.

6. Place the mixture into an oven-safe pot and place it in a medium temperature oven for 1 ½ hours. Check often. Remove once the rice is tender and has absorbed all the liquid. Do not let it get too dry. Add water if needed.


Variations: This recipe is tasty garnished with raisins, nuts and a little plain yogurt. If you don’t have 2 hours to devote to this dish, or your oven freaks you out, make it on the stovetop instead. Refer to the Basic Rice recipe*, and add the additional ingredients in this recipe.  Serve when rice is tender and has absorbed the water and the vegetables are cooked to a texture of your liking. On the stovetop you may discover the rice needs less liquid, so add the water gradually.
