  1. Bring the rice and water to a boil in a saucepan over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the rice is tender, and the liquid has been absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, place a steamer insert into a saucepan, and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Cover, and bring the water to a boil over high heat. Add the cauliflower, cover, and steam until just tender, 4 to 5 minutes depending on thickness. Remove from steamer and set aside.
  3. Season the pork chops with 1 1/2 teaspoon of curry powder, salt, and pepper. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Arrange the pork chops in the skillet and cook until the pork is no longer pink in the center, about 3 minutes on each side. Place pork chops on a platter and cover to keep warm.
  4. Sprinkle the remaining 2 1/2 teaspoons of curry powder and flour into the same skillet. Whisk in the chicken broth, buttermilk, and apple chutney. Continue cooking until the curry has thickened. Stir in the cauliflower and half of the green onion; cook until the cauliflower is heated through. Place 3/4 cup of rice on each plate, and top each portion with a pork chop. Spoon curry sauce over pork chops, and sprinkle the remaining green onions to garnish.

I thought I would post an idea for people who are like me, AKA trying to watch Calories and big lovers of Curry. (LOVE IT) If you put the cauliflower in a food processor and chopped it up to ab...

I like that this recipe is in very separate steps. I just did the part with the pork chops and curry sauce. I made my own apple chutney instead of using store bought. I thought the curry sauc...

Sorry, did not care for this dish. The pork chops, sauce and rice were ok, but the cauliflower ruined it for my family. I expected the dish to have more kick. Maybe use hot chutney.

I love this site - some people say that if we make changes we shouldn't review the recipe. I don't agree. I saw this recipe and it sounded good but when I read the reviews I saw that others wa...

I love how easy this is to make.

Excellent job Fight the Fat Foodie! I made this recipe as written and it was great. Loved it. I made my own apple chutney from a recipe on another site. I used a hot curry powder. Lots of f...

Cooked this tonight for my family. They are not used to curry dishes. They loved this! I doubled the sauce ingredients but otherwise stayed true to the orignial recipe. Oh also used mango chut...

I made this for dinner last night. I don't have a steamer, so I just boiled the cauliflower. My grocery store doesn't have apple chutney, so, like another reviewer, I used mango chutney instead....

The pork chops turned out great. I wasn't crazy about the sauce. It was quite gritty. I don't think I'll make this one again.
