Recipe type: Side-Dish
Serves: 4
  • 1.5 cups of dry basmati rice
  • 1.5 cups of cold water
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon of cumin
  • 1 tablespoon turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon fresh or dried chives or you can use spring onion
  • ¼ cup minced red onion
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ cup Thompson raisins
  • ¾ cup chopped apple of your choice
  • Handful of chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 cup of hot water with 1.5 tablespoons of low-sodium chicken bouillon mixed in
  1. Wash your rice a couple of times with luke-warm water to rinse away as much starch as you can then put into the rice cooker. Add in equal parts water and make sure the rice is covered with water.
  2. Add in all of the spices (not the chicken broth, apples or raisins)
  3. Give it a stir then turn on your rice cooker
  4. When the rice is done add in the chicken stock (if you want to add chicken breast add it first before the chicken stock) Mix little by little as you add the stock slowly so the rice absorbs it.
  5. Add the apples, raisins, lime juice and mix
  6. Top with chopped fresh parsley and a bit of cinnamon
  7. Enjoy
