Those of you that are regular visitors to our website will probably know that we’ve used it in a previous recipe (which you can find here), and we were really impressed with the results. So much so that we use it every time we cook rice nowadays.
Which reminds me…..please excuse the state of the rice cooker in our photos. As I said, it gets used a lot, hence the yellow tinge! If you’re using it to make things like this Syn Free Mexican Rice it will start to discolour after a while. Don’t worry though, it doesn’t affect the performance or taste in the slightest.
Add the chopped onion, chilli, peppers, peas and spices. Pour in the boiling water and stir until the stock is dissolved.
Add the rice and stir.
Pop the lid on and cook in the microwave on high power for 12 minutes. Remove from the microwave and give it a stir with a fork. Check the rice is cooked and the water has absorbed. Add a little more water and cook for another minute or two if you find it’s still slightly undercooked.
