2 Spring Onions
Half a White Onion,
2 Carrots diced or 1 Large Carrot diced
5-6 leaves of Savoy Cabbage, chopped
1 Red Bell Pepper, diced
3-4 cloves of Garlic crushed and minced
3 Stalks of Celery, diced

1 Teaspoon each of Dried Thyme, Mint, Black Mustard Seeds, Pimento Powder and Coriander seeds-The seeds need to be ground in a coffee/spice grinder.
1 1/2 Cups Of Basmati Rice, rinsed at least 3 times.
Vegetable Oil to sauté the vegetables
Salt and Cracked Black Pepper to taste

METHOD

Peel, chop, wash and slice the vegetables to bitesize pieces. Fry the onions, garlic and vegetables on a medium heat for them to fry and soften, but not, darken in colour. Add the seasonings after grinding the coriander and black mustard seeds. In total, fry for around 10 minutes or until softening begins.

Rinse the rice in a sieve, and add to the pot. Stir, to coat in the seasonings and then add water to cover the contents. Turn the stove on a low heat, and leave for 20-30 minutes or until the rice is tender, and doubled in volume. Add extra drops of liquid if necessary, if the rice grains haven’t cooked yet. You are essentially looking to steam cook the rice. Serve with Barbecue Ribs, Chicken, Roast/Stewed Beef, or Quorn style Chicken pieces in Korma Sauce. Disfrutalo!!
