Totally rejigged this recipe which would still serve 4 people as a side! Half the amount of rice, add 400g passata, about 400ml of stock. Add a finely chopped leek, and as much fresh chilli as you can handle. Double the spices, check for salt and pepper. Stir often, and cook until cooked - why would you take recipe timings as gospel?! Add chickpeas for extra texture! Cheap, cheerful, tasty and nutritious.

Tried this recipe as it sounded quick and simple but unfortunately the measurements are way out.What you are left with is a huge amount of bland, tasteless and undercooked rice, just horrible!!!! DO NOT try this recipe, it is a waste of your time and your money.

These proportions did not work for me at all. It seems like 500 ml of stock was was too little, as my rice was left undone with that quantity of stock. Also, no pan can actually hold that much rice, so I cooked it in a saucepan, but the rice burnt at the bottom. What a disaster! :(
