If I make a cup of basmati rice, how much curry powder should I use to flavor it. I know nothing about cooking.

You're going to have to experiment. Add a small amount, taste it, adjust if you think you would like more. If you put in too much, just make some more plain rice and mix it in. That's the beauty of rice; overseasoning is easily fixed.


You could look up some recipes online for curry-flavored rice. You might find that the addition of a sweet element like currants or dried apricots or something similar would balance the flavors in your rice dish. Curry powder itself is a good start, but the flavor blends well with other things, too, especially things like dried fruit. Also, once you get the hang of using grocery-store curry powder, you can branch out into the different types of curry flavorings you can find in Asian grocery stores and maybe even try blending your own curry flavorings. Curry powder is a mixture of several different spices, and different regions of South Asia and Southeast Asia have their own favored blends.


Good luck and happy cooking!

I would put 1 t. and then see if I needed more or less the next time. A little curry goes a long way.

I would use 2 teaspoons of curry powder and cook that 1 cup of rice in 2 cups of chicken broth.
