  • 1L chicken stock or water

Prep:5min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:20min 

  1. Heat a little oil in a saucepan and turn spices, onions and rice a bit.
  2. Throw in chicken stock or water and cover with pot lid.
  3. Simmer on a low-medium heat for 15 minutes.


Do not stir rice around or it will go "mushy". To evapourate any additional liquid, at the end, simmer with lid off.
