Tanzanian Vegetable Rice

This colourful "Tanzanian Vegetable Rice", involves very simple procedure. The taste is so great.



Ingredients :

1. Basmati rice - 1.5 Cups
2. Vegetable oil - 3 tbs
3. Onion - 1 (Chopped)
4. Garlic cloves - 2 (Crushed)
5. Vegetable stock or water - 3 Cups
6. Sweet corn - 1/2 Cup
7. Red bell pepper or green bell pepper - 1/2 Cup (Chopped) (I used both)
8. Carrot - 1 (Large and Grated)

Procedure :

1. Wash the rice and completely drain water.

2. Heat the oil in a large saucepan and fry the onion for a few minutes over a moderate heat until soft.

3. Add the rice and stir-fry for about 10 minutes, taking care to keep stirring all the time so that the rice doesn’t stick to the pan.

4. Add the garlic and the stock or water and stir well. Bring to the boil and cook over a high heat for 5 minutes, then reduce the heat, cover and cook the rice for 20 minutes.

5. Scatter the corn over the rice, then spread the pepper on top and lastly sprinkle over the grated carrot.

6.Cover tightly and steam over a low heat until the rice is cooked, then mix together with a fork and serve immediately.
