This one-dish curry is a perfect dish to have on hand when the fire’s cozily crackling and guests are lingering. It takes just minutes to prepare and no time to cook. Serve ladled over steaming forbidden black rice; it’s comfort in a bowl. Plus it’s low on dishes too!
Add some more wow
Break out some additional colorful veggies for this dish. Add broccolini spears to simmering rice near the end of cooking just until bright green but still crisp. Using tongs, remove and set aside. Then serve curried dahl over rice with broccolini placed on top of each serving. Make it even more visual and tastefully delicious with halved cherry or grape tomatoes and wedges of lime.
Join the nobility
Black rice is called “forbidden rice” because it was, at one time, grown only for aristocracy. It’s available in most fine food stores. Substitute with risotto or quinoa, if you wish.
