Rice is a staple in my kitchen, usually served a few times a week to go along with dinner. I enjoy it plain, sometimes with a little butter and a bit of salt, especially if I'm in a rush or preparing a more elaborate entrée to go along with it, but I never tire of finding new ways to dress up the blank canvas that is rice.
It just so happens that my new copy of 660 Curries has plenty of tasty alternatives to plain rice to serve alongside you favorite curry dishes. I decided to try this easy recipe for lime-flavored rice with roasted yellow split peas as the flavors seemed particularly complementary to the chickpeas with a coconut sauce I planned to make. My dinner guests were not disappointed.
