2 cups rice (see Cook's Note)
2 tablespoons light olive oil
2 cups chopped vegetables such as carrots, broccoli, yellow squash, zucchini, etc.
1 onion, sliced into strips
1/4 cup cashews or peanuts
1/4 cup raisins
1 tablespoon curry powder (add more if you like)
Jasmine rice works well in this dish. As you become more comfortable with the dish, add chopped fresh ginger, cilantro or diced cooked potatoes. Chicken or garbanzo beans are great additions also.
