Sprouted Brown Rice Curry

Makes about 4 servings

2 cups germinated brown rice (GBR)
1 1/2 cups dent corn, soaked
2 cups vegetable stock
3 cups filtered water
1 small white onion, diced
2-3 fresh red chiles, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon safflower threads, soaked
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon ghee
1/3 cup coconut cream
1 teaspoon coriander seeds
1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
1/4 teaspoon black mustard seeds
1/2 black pepper
1 1/2 teaspoons turmeric
1/2 teaspoon fenugreek
2 teaspoons curry leaves
raw cashews

To germinate rice, place in a bowl and cover with 100 degree water.  Cover loosely and allow to stand on the counter, changing water 2-3 times a day until germinated, 18-48 hours.

Toast coriander and cumin seeds in a dry skillet until fragrant.  Transfer to a spice grinder and process along with mustard seeds, peppercorns, turmeric and fenugreek.

Sauté chiles, onions and garlic in ghee until softened.

Combine vegetable stock and water and bring to a boil.  Stir in corn and simmer 20 minutes.  Stir in rice, cover and simmer 20 minutes.  Add spices, curry leaves, onions, garlic, chiles, safflower threads and coconut cream and simmer until thickened, about 15 minutes.  Adjust flavor with salt if necessary.

Ladle into bowls and garnish with cilantro, toasted cashews and coconut flakes.

  1. How do you soak you corn? I’ve yet to start soaking grains (except oatmeal) and I think that’s it’s probably a lot easier than I think.

    1. Simply put dried corn (dent corn, hominy) in a bowl, cover with cool water and allow to stand overnight. Drain & rinse with fresh water and you’re all set!
