Mum's Bombay Rice Salad

An absolutely delicious recipe. Always the first to go at parties. Quick to make and there's never any leftovers.


  • 1/2 cup salad oil (I use less, but you can't skip it altogether.)
  • Juice 1 large lemon
  • 2 tblsp fruit chutney
  • 1 tsp salt (Optional)
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper (I use cracked black and about 2 tsp.)
  • 1 tsp curry powder
  • Place the whole lot into a jar and shake.

    Chewy Bits

  • 1 1/2 cups brown rice
  • 1 cup sultanas
  • 1 cup roasted almonds, cashews or walnuts (or a mixture, don't use cashews if you're watching your fat intake.)
  • 1/2 each red & green capsicum (that's peppers, for the culturally challenged :)
  • 1 large white onion, diced
  • 1/2 medium (400g?) can corn kernels, drained.
  • (I add 1/2 cup of diced celery too.)
  • Cook the rice until it's just tender, drain. Add the other ingredients and mix dressing in until everything is well coated. Let it sit for a while before eating. Leave some for everyone else.
