Cook Rice-a-Roni as instructed on the boxes minus 1 cup of water and don't brown first. Let simmer as instructed. While Rice is cooking, drain artichoke hearts reserving the liquids for later use. Chop artichoke hearts and place in large bowl. Drain olives and place in bowl with artichoke hearts. In a small mixing bowl place reserved liquid from the artichoke hearts, 1/4tsp curry powder and 1cup mayonnaise; mix well. Once the majority of the liquid is cooked from the rice place it in the large bowl with the artichoke hearts and olives. While the rice mixture is still hot pour in the mayonnaise mixture and mix thoroughly. This dish is good warm but is best served cold.
