Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 cup brown basmati or brown jasmine rice
  • 4 1/4 cups water
  • 1 cup brown lentils
  • 4 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 4 1/8-inch-thick slices peeled fresh ginger
  • 1-2 teaspoons red curry paste, (see Note) or 1 tablespoon curry powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 scallions, trimmed and sliced

Recipe Directions:

Place rack in lower third of oven; preheat to 350ºF.

Melt butter over medium-high heat in a large ovenproof Dutch oven; add rice and cook, stirring, until lightly toasted, about 1 1/2 minutes. (If using curry powder, add it now and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 15 seconds.) Add water. Stir in lentils, garlic cloves, cinnamon stick, ginger, curry paste, if using, and salt; bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve the curry paste.

Cover the pot tightly with a lid or foil. Transfer to the oven and bake until the rice and lentils are tender and all the water is absorbed, 50 to 55 minutes. Fluff with a fork, removing the cinnamon stick and ginger slices. Serve garnished with scallions.
