  • Bell pepper (1 large)
  • Scotch Bonnet (1)
  • Onion (1 large)
  • Stock (2 cups)
  • Vegetables diced

Preparation

Chop or grate ¼ of the onion Wash rice in boiled water to get rid of the starch and pour it in a sieve to drain. (Hint: the starchier the rice, the longer it should stay in boiled water) Fry onions in 1 tablespoon of oil till tender Add blended sauce (tomato, bell pepper, scotch bonnet, onion), tomato paste and stock, cook till it forms a thick paste stirring all the time so it does not get burnt. Pour 1 and a half litre of water into the mix and bring to the boil. Add drained rice and cook till soft enough. Mix it till evenly coloured. It should have a rich orange colour
