How do I make this Savoury Rice?
Over a medium heat, spray a large frying pan with Low Calorie Cooking Spray and cook the onions for around 5 minutes until softened.
Stir in the peppers, carrots, mushrooms, turmeric and curry powder and cook for another couple of minutes.
Mix up the stock cube with the hot water.
Add the rice to the pan and another few sprays of Low Calorie Cooking Spray so the rice doesn’t stick together. Stir well.
Add the stock, peas, and sweetcorn. Stir and bring to the boil.
Cover the pan and lower the heat. Allow to simmer for 15 minutes or until the rice is tender, stirring occasionally.
Serve immediately on its own, or with your choice of meal!
