  • 2 Stalks of Spring Onion
  • 1 tsp Paprika
  • 2 tsps Medium Nandos Piri Piri Seasoning

  • Freshly Milled Salt and Pepper
  • 2 1/2 Cups Boiling Water (and a bit extra if needed)
  • 1/2 Lemon Juice (if desired)


  • STEP 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.
  • STEP 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.
  • STEP 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.
  • STEP 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!
