  1. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a medium pot over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the rice and cook, stirring often, for 2 minutes.
  2. Add the curry powder, 1¾ cups water, and ¼ teaspoon each salt and black pepper and stir to combine. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer until the rice is tender, 18 to 22 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand, covered, for 5 minutes.

  4. Add the remaining tablespoon of oil to the drippings in the skillet. Add the shallot and peas and cook, tossing occasionally, until the shallots are tender and the peas are heated through, 2 to 3 minutes. Mix in the mint, lime juice, and ¼ teaspoon each salt and black pepper.
