Flavoured Basmati Rice


  • 1 small onion
  • 2-3 tbps olive oil or oil from sun dried tomatoes
  • 300 ml basmati rice
  • 500 ml water
  • 1-2 tsp salt
  • sun-dried tomatoes
  • fresh coriancer
  • dates


  • Chop the onion. Add the oil and onion to the pan and cook with low-medium heat until the onion has softened.
  • Rinse the rice and place in the pan with onions. Add (cold) water and the sun-dried tomatoes. Bring to boil and let simmer under a lid until all the water has dissolved. This takes about 15-20 minutes.
  • Remove from stove and mix. Add the dates and fresh coriander just before serving. I chop them directly to the pan with scissors.
