Spicy rice




  1. Wash the rice thoroughly under cold running water and set aside.

  2. Heat the oil in a large pan and fry the onions until golden-brown. Remove and set aside.

  3. While the pan is still hot, add all the spices and cook for 1-2 minutes.

  4. Add the rinsed rice to the pan, along with the salt and 550ml/1 pint of water. Cover and bring to the boil. Add half of the cooked onions and simmer on a low heat for a further 10-15 minutes until the rice is tender.

  5. Serve hot and garnished with the remaining onions.
