1/3 cup chopped onions
1 t salt
1/8 t black pepper
1 t curry powder
1 cup uncooked white rice

2 t lemon juice
Chopped parsley


Melt butter in a 2 qt. saucepan. Add chopped onions, cooking until tender and slightly yellow. Stir in salt, pepper and curry powder. Add rice. Slowly add chicken stock and lemon juice. Bring to a boil. Cover, turn down to low heat and simmer for 20 minutes or until water is absorbed. Remove from heat but leave lid on for at least 10 more minutes.
