    From the Test Kitchen

    Chefs! We’re bringing you a series of recipes designed with ease of cooking and cleanup in mind, but without sacrificing the incredible flavors you’ve come to expect from a classic Blue Apron meal. In this quick-cooking dish, our beef and carrots get dynamic flavor from the savory Indian tomato chutney they cook with in the pan. It’s all served over a bed of vadouvan rice, then brought together by toppings of creamy cilantro sauce and crispy onions.

    tips & techniques

    1 Cook the rice

    Carefully rinse the rice (sifting through for any small stones or impurities). Drain thoroughly. In a small pot, combine the rice, raisins, half the curry powder (you will have extra), a big pinch of salt, and 1 cup of water. Heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook, without stirring, 13 to 15 minutes, or until the water has been absorbed and the rice is tender. Turn off the heat and fluff with a fork.

    In a large pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the beef and sliced carrots; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally and breaking the meat apart with a spoon, 6 to 7 minutes, or until the beef is lightly browned and the carrots are slightly softened. Add the tomato achaar and 2 tablespoons of water (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until the carrots are softened and the beef is cooked through.
