This is a delicious and savoury curried barley dish. It is fabulous as a main course, or as a side dish with fish or chicken breast. It is quite simple to make and sure to impress!

I was so excited to try this because I LOVE barley, and it did not disappoint. I changed the raisins and almonds to peas and carrots because I had just had a bad experience with both (kidney stone anyone???) and we need our veggies! I added 1/2 cup more chicken broth to help cook the carrots and added more curry per other reviews. Also used oil instead of butter. Fantastic taste - I really like the subtle allspice flavor. Ate this with some tilapia - DELISH. - 20 Sep 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This looked great, but we found it disappointing - bland and boring. If you do make it, double the spices. You can also cut the butter to 2 tsp. oil. - 04 Feb 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
