Method

  1. Heat the oil in a wide pan with a lid, then cook the onion, pepper and ginger together for 5 mins, stirring, until softened. Stir in the rice and turmeric for 1 min more, then pour over the stock. When the stock begins to simmer, cover with the lid.
  2. Cook for 12 mins until the rice is tender and stock has been absorbed. If the rice is tender but a little stock remains, turn off the heat, cover again, then leave for 2-3 mins. Season and stir through the almonds to serve.

I served this rice with the quick prawn, coconut & tomato curry on this site. It went very well with this dish and the colours were lovely.

Aesthetically, very pleasing but i think it was very bland at the end needed plenty of seasoning to get a modicum of taste! sorry......:(

Made this to go with the Jerk Chicken and Bean curry, (although mine was a vegetarian dish with quorn) I used long grain and wild rice cooked for 18 mins did need to add a little more water at about 14 mins. Great flavour and very simple.

A great accompaniment to the Thai butternut squash and chicken curry (thanks for the pointer, Jules99). Absolutely delicious.

Made this at the weekend with the recipe for Thai butternut and chicken red curry and they were fantastic together. The ginger gave it a nice bit of bite. Will definitely make them both again!!
