Make an easy, satisfying curry with help from our quick-cooking, long-grain basmati rice. With tender chicken, curry powder, crunchy cashews, soft lentils and creamy plain yogurt, it’s got loads of flavor, a mix of textures and is sure to become a family favorite.
Prepare rice according to package directions. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add onions and cook for 8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until softened. Stir in garlic, curry powder and cumin. Cook for 1-2 minutes more.
Add the remaining oil and the chicken and cook for 10 minutes, stirring frequently to fully coat chicken in the spice mixture.
Reduce heat and fold in lentils. Cover and simmer until chicken is thoroughly cooked, about 5 minutes. Stir in yogurt. Serve over rice and garnish with cashews.
