2 Servings


  • 250 g cooked rice basmati or long grain
  • 2 red onions chopped
  • 4 baby red peppers deseeded and chopped
  • 1 carrot finely diced
  • 10 baby plum tomatoes finely chopped
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp ground coriander
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp garam masala or curry powder
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 pinch of chilli powder
  • 2 -3 handfuls of fresh coriander
  • low calorie cooking spray


  1. Chop the onions and peppers into thick chunks and finely dice the carrot and tomatoes.

  2. Spray a good amount of low calorie cooking spray into a frying pan and place over a high heat. Once the pan is hot and the cooking spray has turned clear, add your spices.

  3. Stir the spices for 10 - 20 seconds.

  4. Add all of your veg to the pan. Keep an eye on it and mix regularly to stop it from sticking and burning. Cook until the vegetables have softened, but still have some bite - this should take around 10 minutes.

  5. Add the cooked rice and stir again for 2 - 3 minutes until the vegetables and spices are completely incorporated into the rice.

  6. At the last minute, add the chopped coriander and stir once more. Serve with some fresh lime juice over the top.
