Curry rice

This is a variation of the previous recipe and it is very easy to make, given that you have curry (Curry in itself is difficult to describe since it is a term that describes a family of sauces and spices, refer to wikipedia for more info).

Ingredients (4 people)
2 Teaspoons of curry
2 Cups of rice
3.5 cups of boiled water
Oil (I prefer olive oil)
Salt, pepper, garlic.

Boil the water, as in the previous recipe don't let it boil long just let it reach the boiling temperature.
Put the rice on a pot and add salt and oil to it. 4 teaspoons of oil should be more than enough, but it is up to you.
Fry the rice, but don't let it burn. As soon as you see some grains turning really white, turn the fire to low position.
Add the boiling water, and after that add the curry and mix. Depending on the amount of curry used, the colour it will take. 4 Teaspoons should give a pale yellow color on the final rice. For most people that it is more than enough spice, you need to adjust it to your own taste.
Put the lid on the pot and let it cook for 10 minutes on medium to low fire. As in the previous recipe, check the rice after 8 minutes to see how it's going.
This rice goes well with spicy foods, such as spicy chicken.
