Step by Step Instructions

Step 1

I’m using a pressure cooker for this dish meaning it’ll be ready in 15mins but if not, use a pot and lid and cook for 1hr 10mins. 

Step 2

Add all the ingredients to the pressure cooker apart from the rice. Close the lid and pressure cook for 15mins.

Remove from the stove and allow to sit for 5mins.


Step 3

Remove the lid from the cooker and leave to rest for 5mins.

Stir through the cold heat and heat gently over a medium heat until the rice is hot.

Step 4

Serve this dish garnished with fresh herbs like parsley, chives or oregano.
