In the supermarket you’ll find excellent basmati rice perfect for this kind of recipe. You should find written on the packet both Thai rice and/or scented basmati rice, depending on the brand. Its aroma is delicate and unmistakably Eastern. Keep a pack in the pantry and always cook it carefully, using the traditional eastern method. Don’t use it for risotto or rice salads as the result will be unsatisfactory. A curiosity in relation to curry: curry is not a single spice, but a mixture of spices. That's why not all curry tastes the same: they may be more or less spicy. To control the flavour and final outcome of your curry, just do as we suggest us in this recipe, or make a spice mixture yourself.
