    1. Heat olive oil in a medium saucepan over low heat. Sweat the garlic; when the garlic becomes aromatic, slowly stir in pepper, cumin, curry powder and chilli powder. When spices begin to fry and become fragrant, stir in the stock cube and a little water.
    2. Increase heat to high and add the rest of the water and the soy sauce. Just before the mixture comes to the boil, stir in rice. Bring to a rolling boil; reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer 15 to 20 minutes, or until all liquid is absorbed.
    3. Remove from heat and let stand 5 minutes.
