    From the Test Kitchen

    In this dish, you’ll bloom fragrant vadouvan curry powder with a touch of vinegar—an easy technique that helps release the flavors of the spices—before mixing it with creamy mayonnaise and tangy mustard. It’s a bright, flavorful drizzle for our chicken and rice, cooked with lightly sweet bites of carrots and currants.

    tips & techniques

    Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Peel the carrots; quarter lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise.

    2 Cook the carrots & rice

    In a medium pot, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the chopped garlic and sliced carrots; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until slightly softened. Add the rice, currants, and 1 cup of water (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Stir to combine. Heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook, without stirring, 12 to 14 minutes, or until the water has been absorbed and the rice and carrots are tender. Turn off the heat and fluff with a fork. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Cover to keep warm.
