  1. Just made this with added Chicken breast for my lunches next week. Easily enough for 4 lunch meals, easy to make and very tasty!!!

  2. made this the other night for dinner, was very very tasty will certainly be making this again & maybe adding some chicken or serving with some sausages next time

    1. Hi Laura,
      The good thing abput this recipe is you can add pretty much whatever meat or veg you want and it will still taste great. I love it with chicken too 🙂

  3. Tried this for the first time this week and loved it, I did use medium curry powder though as I like a bit more spice and I chucked in some tomatoes I had in the fridge, it was lovely, I will definitely be making this again!

    1. Hi Deb
      You’ll need to be very cautious with reheating cooked rice, as it can cause food poisoning if it isn’t cooled and stored correctly. We would always recommend that you cook and serve rice straight away wherever possible.

  4. Hi I have just made this rice with onions,diced carrots,butternut squash and frozen peas and served it with lean pork steaks marinated in soy sauce ginger and chilli. It was delicious. Enjoyed it very much

  5. Just made this to have with chicken skewers – absolutely delicious! We’re already planning when we can have people round and make it for them!
