A delicious yet simple rice side dish, made with long grain white rice, diced red onion and chicken stock. This tasty side is a great accompaniment to fish or chicken.
Good recipe, thanks. About 1/2 way through the simmering process I added some left over roast chicken (cut small), two shallots, some coriander and a small red chilli (all cut small). About 5 minutes before serving I also added a big splodge of Worcestershire sauce and stirred it through. Bloody brilliant. I think next time I may also add a diced clove of garlic with the onions. - 14 Dec 2012
Used different ingredients. Our whole family loved this! I used olive oil instead of butter for sauteeing and added a clove of minced garlic to the onion. Basmati rice worked well for this, and I browned it with the oil and onion for a few minutes. I added parsley, thyme and basil. Just a few grinds of pepper was all it needed. Try grating in a few carrots to give it a nice colour. I'll make this again, probably adding almonds or pecans. - 29 Sep 2008
This is a great dish. My husband says it is one of the best things I have ever cooked! The rice was all separated and very light and fluffy. I used lemon olive oil instead of butter, and added some peas to make it more filling, and served it with Kofta and Raita. A great meal that will now be a regular. - 18 Feb 2012
