Just a little curry powder perks up the flavor of this easy barley side dish. Barley is a noteworthy alternative to rice.
In a medium saucepan stir together the water, barley, carrot, onion, chicken bouillon granules, and curry powder.
Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, about 15 minutes or until barley is tender. Uncover; cook for 3 to 5 minutes more or until desired consistency. Stir in almonds and snipped parsley. If desired, garnish with fresh parsley.
