Notes for the chef: The Patak's Curry Paste seems very expensive, but it keeps well in the refrigerator and a little goes a long way. You may end up loving it and can use it in several recipes. Find it at Asian and gourmet stores.
Cook the rice. Chop the chili, garlic and cilantro. Mix everything into the warm cooked rice. Chill for 1-2 hours. Eat. Enjoy. For a spicier version, add more chili, garlic and curry paste. Serves about 8.
