Decided to still make it since I had all the ingredients. Since I didn’t know how much, I just added half a yellow onion. I followed the recipe exactly and overall it was very runny, and way too much curry powder. Personally, curry isn’t my favorite but a little bit is okay, this was still too much. Also, this is wayyyyyy to much vegetables for that little amount of rice.. seriously. I’m a college student and I seperate every large recipe I make into little containers so i can grab it on the go. I ended up having to put veggies in containers by themselves. And the ones that contain rice and veggies, it’s such a small amount of rice.
Overall, this recipe is not at all worth the time and money. It took me over an hour to look for all these crazy ingredients at Whole Foods and none of them were even important.
Strongly not recommended.
