  • 1/2 White Onion
  • 1 Birds Eye Chilli (or to taste if you like extra spice)
  • 2 Stalks of Spring Onion
  • 1 tsp Paprika
  • 2 tsps Medium Nandos Piri Piri Seasoning
  • 1 1/2 Chicken Stock Cubes (Aldi's own works best)
  • 2 Cloves of Garlic
  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 180g Rice
  • Freshly Milled Salt and Pepper
  • 2 1/2 Cups Boiling Water (and a bit extra if needed)
  • 1/2 Lemon Juice (if desired)


  1. Mix all chopped ingredients together with seasoning, except the stock cubes and rice, and fry for 2 mins in a large non stick saucepan. Start to boil kettle.

  2. Add rice, uncooked, to the pan and mix well. Add the stock cubes and water then bring to the boil. Reduce heat to simmer and stir occasionally for 20-30 mins.

  3. If would like to be a bit more saucy then add more boiling water or some lemon juice for a bit of freshness. Once rice is fully cooked serve immediately.

  4. TOP TIP!!... . This dish goes great as a side with Piri Piri Chicken and chips. If cooking dish with chicken pour any chicken juices into the rice once cooked to give some extra flavour!
