Aromatic Yellow Spiced Rice

Don’t let the name ‘Aromatic Yellow Spiced Rice’ fool you – I might have called this dish ‘Aromatic Yellow Spiced Rice’ but the reference to spice is in flavour only and in no way refers to heat. It’s a great dish to introduce children to the colours, aromas and flavours of the world of spice.

This is one of my most requested side dishes, it’s almost like a pilaf. I have quite a few friends who have taught their kids to cook it on days when they want to (or need to) help with dinner.

You need a frypan with a lid for this recipe, preferably non-stick

Serves six as a side dish.

Method

How to Make Aromatic Yellow Spiced Rice: 

  1. Heat the olive oil in the frypan over med-low heat.
  2. Gently fry the spices together in oil until aromatic, be careful not to burn them.
  3. Then add the rice and toast it in the spices, stirring constantly for about a minute to a minute and a half - make sure the rice is well coated.
  4. Pour over the stock, stir for about 30 seconds, put the lid on and reduce the heat to low.
  5. Simmer until all of the stock has been absorbed and the rice is cooked.
  6. Fluff the rice and serve.
  7. Note: I often can’t help myself and I stir the rice a couple of times in the first 6 minutes of cooking!
