• 2 cups long grain rice
  • 4 cups water
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 tsp ginger, chopped
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp all in one curry powder
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 large carrot, cubed
This is one of my favourite ways to prepare rice. The flavours are just simply amazing and give a great boost to the rice in terms of taste. It’s absolutely a perfect variety to the usual plain boiled white rice, especially if it’s not the aromatic rice varieties.. As is said, variety is the spice of life!

Resources/Equipment You Will Need

  • Chopping board
  • Sharp knife
  • Wooden spoon

Quick Instructions

  1. Have your ingredients ready.
  2. Put your oil in a pot. Add the garlic and ginger. Fry on low heat for about 2 min. This is so that the oil adopts the flavour of the garlic and ginger.  Increase the heat and add the onions and curry powder.  Fry for a minute. Add the carrots and fry for a further 2 min, stirring occasionally.
  3. Add the rice and stir. Allow this  to fry for  3 min, stirring regularly to make sure the rice does not stick to the pot.
  4. Add water and salt. Stir a little and close the pot.
  5. Bring to the boil then reduce the heat to a gentle simmer until the rice is cooked.
  6. Fluff up the rice using a fork.
