Spicy rice

This is the first dish I cooked by myself! I was around 16 and we went camping with some friends. Their cousin, who was older, taught us how to cook this spicy rice. It’s a very hearty dish, made of simple ingredients, and very easy to make: a really good recipe! The magic comes from the spices used to cook the rice.

In the original recipe, there is no sweetcorn, but I think it makes the dish more colorful and crunchy. Enjoy!


Prep : 15 minutes

Cooking : 20 to 30 minutes


Makes 2 main courses :

  • 7 oz sausage meat
  • 1/2 onion
  • 1/2 cup round grain rice
  • 1 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 tbsp colombo powder
  • 1 cup canned sweetcorn
  • 1 cup canned diced tomatoes


In a pan, sauté the minced half-onion and sausage meat with a drizzle of oil.

When nicely brown-colored, add the rice and sauté for few seconds.

Add the spices, sweetcorn and tomato, then add 2 cups of water or chicken stock (better!) and stir.

Leave to simmer 20 to 30 minutes, half-covered. Make sure the rice doesn’t burn. Add some water if needed, until the rice is perfectly cooked and creamy.

Enjoy, it’s ready!
