How to prepare

How to prepare spiced rice:

  2. * You may need to add 1-2-1 cup of water every ten minutes because the water evaporates

    * After the chicken is cooked, leave the water in the pot, as it is necessary to use it for rice

  3. In another deep saucepan, place 30 g of Bakers Choice and 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil, then add the minced meat and cook until done
  4. Add all the spices to the meat and stir until fully combined, then add 1 chicken broth cube and stir until dissolved.
  5. Put 1.5 cups of long rice and then pour 2.25 cups of chicken broth into the first pot (leave 1/4 cup of chicken broth for sauce)
  6. If chicken broth is not enough to fill 2.25 cups of water, fill in the water standard of plain water:*

  7. Let it boil until the water is equal to the level of the rice, then cover the pot and put the rice stick under the pot, then put it on a low heat and leave it to cook for about 10-15 minutes.
  8. Meanwhile, place in a small saucepan 30 g of Baker’s Choice until dissolved, then add 2 tablespoons of the white flour, stirring constantly.
  9. Then put 1-4 cups of the chicken broth that you left on the side previously, then stir until the flour and broth are completely mixed with a pinch of salt, 2 tablespoons of lemon juice and 1 cube of chicken broth and keep stirring until you have a thick sauce and then add it in a bowl.
