Curried Rice Pilaf

We have this all the time. Fun to go to your nearest spice shop and experiment with the wonderful curry mixes that they have. My favorite I order online from "Savory Spice Shop" in Denver Colorado. The flavor I like is called "Zanzibar Curry".

1/4 cup onions

1 garlic clove, minced

2 tablespoons butter or margarine

3/4 cup long grain rice, uncooked

1/2 teaspoon curry powder

1 1/2 cups chicken broth

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 cup golden raisins

1/4 cup slivered almonds

In a large skillet, saute onions and garlic in butter until tender. Stir in rice and curry powder. Saute 2-5 minutes, until rice is lightly browned. In a saucepan, heat broth and salt. Pour over rice mixture; stir. Cover and simmer for about 25-35 minutes or until rice is tender. Remove from heat and stir in raisins and almonds.
