Savoury Rice

January 7, 2011 § Leave a comment

A cooked chicken curry last weekend and (as always), there was cooked white rice left over. I refuse to throw perfectly good food away. I usually freeze the rice until the next time we have a rice dish, but my freezer in the new apartment is tiny. So this is what I came up with:

Lilla Snigel’s Leftover Savoury Rice


  • 1 tspn of chopped garlic
  • 1/2 a white onion
  • 1/2 tspn salt
  • 1/2 tspn white pepper
  • sprinkle of any herbs you have
  • 2 tspns lemon juice
  • 1 chopped up green pepper
  • 1/2 chopped tomato
  • About 2 cups of leftover rice (I had basmati)
  • A dollop of tomato sauce
  • A dollop of Nandos sauce (Yes, I brought some in my bag from Sweden)
  • Some chopped up fresh coriander


  • Braise the garlic and onion in a frying pan – wait for the onion to soften
  • Add the tomato, green pepper, spices and lemon juice – allow the green pepper to soften
  • Add the rice, sauces and coriander
  • Mix well

It was haochi (delicious in Chinese). You could probably serve it as a side dish with some meat/chicken/fish.
