Long grains of rice interspersed with colourful and chunky veggies, and lusciously flavoured with coconut cream and curry paste. The ultimate touch to the baby corn and mushroom curry rice is the addition of lemon rind and basil leaves, whose aroma is indelibly locked in by cooking the rice wrapped in a banana leaf.
