Recipe instruction

  1. Blend tomatoes and pour into a pot and cook at high heat. Add tin tomatoes and stir as you continue to cook till the water in the tomatoes dries up.

  2. Heat a frying pan or pot for a while and add vegetable oil. Pour the chopped onions and the thickly cooked tomatoes. Stir very well.

  3. Fry at very low heat and stir at short intervals till the oil has completely separated from the tomato. Taste the fried tomato puree to make sure that the raw tomato taste is gone and set aside.

  4. Pour the chicken stock and the tomato stew into a sizeable pot and leave to boil.

  5. Add the drained parboiled rice, curry powder, salt, and pepper to taste. The water level should be the same level of the rice. This is to ensure that all the water dries up by the time the rice is cooked.

  6. Cover the pot and leave to cook on low to medium heat. This way the rice does not burn before the water dries up
