Pilau rice, How to Make

  • Step 1
    Rinse rice until the water runs clear, then drain. Heat oil in a pan over medium heat. Add the onion and cook for 1-2 minutes until just softened. Stir in the spices and curry leaves and cook for 1 minute or until fragrant. Add the rice, 1 teaspoon salt and 600ml boiling water. Bring to the boil, then reduce heat to very low. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent catching, until the rice is tender. Fluff up with a fork and serve.

Fresh curry leaves are available from selected greengrocers. To add colour, cook 1/2 cup (100g) of the rice separately with 1 teaspoon ground turmeric, then combine with the pilau.
