Ingredients List for people

1. Put pan on the heat (medium), add rice to brown for 2 mins. Make up the stock. 

2. Add minced garlic, and a tiny bit of stock to the rice - cook for 5 mins.

3. Add the cumin, tumeric, rest of the stock and passata and reduce to a simmer for 15 mins until the rice has absorbed the liquid or if you are using brown rice, keep adding hot water and cook for 30 mins.

4. Remove from the heat and let sit to cool.

5. Stir through chopped up jalapenos and top with cilantro (coriander) and squeeze over the lime to your taste.

- You can add extra virgin olive oil at this stage if you want but it is delicious without.

You haven’t mentioned the lime! Quartered and served on the side? Or one half of it Squeezed at the end, and the other half itself halved on the side? Personally I think for four people two limes would be needed…


Hi there - I squeezed the lime in at the end of cooking. But up to you if you would like more lime and whether you would like lime on the side
