Indian Vegetable Rice

I make one pot meals as often as possible so I know dinnertime will be easy. Especially when I'm not at my most focused (can you ever be focused when you’re seemingly always feeling exhausted and the kids are running around driving you crazy?), one pot meals ensure I don't have to think about having to turn on the oven and 2-3 burners in order to get the dinner on the table AND clean a bunch of pots and pans afterwards. As the name suggests, “one pot” means a meal that is simple to prepare and even simpler to clean up.

You can easily serve this Indian Vegetable Rice as a vegetarian entree or as a side dish for chicken or fish (which will leave you some leftovers for your next day’s lunch). My kids are big fans of most rice recipes and they love the flavor of curry so this reasonably inexpensive meal goes over very well with my clan and hopefully will for yours too.

    This didn't turn out so well for me. It was somewhat bland and I think could have benefited from more salt or maybe a sprinkling of parmesan cheese. Will definitley try again and use sweet potatoes as that could also add the \"flavor\" I was missing.

    We tried this one and thought it was good, but just missing something. So I made it again last night, and added a teaspoon of paprika to the spices but left everything else the same. It was perfect! A little extra zip brightened it right up.

    This was great for our 18 month old daughter! She loved it, and it wasn't too spicy. :) Thanks!

    Yum! Everyone had seconds. Made some changes for extra flavor: chicken broth instead of water, 2 garlic cloves, 3 tsp curry powder, 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper, 1 1/2 cooked chicken breast, and 1/2 c lentils. Cooked according to rice instructions but put lentils in first for about 10 min then added rice.

    Made this today, my 10 month old couldn't get enough of it! My husband liked it as well. So glad to fine an easy indian recipe that didn't have a lot of heavy ingredients. I did put in paprika and tumeric, and I used just regular brown rice. I used chicken stock for the liquid. It took longer to good and needed about an extra cup of liquid but turned out great.

    Thank you! My picky kindergartener goes to a Jewish school and his lunches have to be vegetarian and totally nut free. He is gluten free so it has not been easy (cheerios and milk everyday ftw) We tried this tonight and he loved it!!! Going into the thermos tomorrow!

    This was remarkable!!! I substituted 1 can of chickpeas and cooked everything in the rice cooker. I sauteed the onion and garlic on the stove and deglazed the pan with the water. Then dumped it in the rice cooker with the rest of the ingredients and cooked it. It turned out amazing! Next time, I will use chicken or vegetable stock for more flavor. We also put in a squirt of siriacha and would have added a little bit of honey if my babe was over 1 year. But even as-is, it was great!
