Place rice, 1 1/2 cups water, and a pinch of salt and pepper in your medium pot over medium heat. Bring to a boil, cover and reduce heat to low. Cook 25-30 minutes until tender. Fluff with fork. While rice is cooking, begin curry. Note: if rice has absorbed the water and is not fully
cooked after 25-30 min, add 1/4 cup water, cover
and cook for 5-10 minutes longer.
