Spicy Pulawo Rice

My son for some reason has decided not to eat any lentils, pulses or beans, and being vegetarian makes it difficult to prepare a wholesome meal. therefore i have been experimenting with a lot of rice dishes and i have created some very nice variations, incorporating basmati rice, health rice with lots of vegetabls and nuts. 

Spicy Pulawo Rice with Veggies & Nuts


500ml cooked basmati rice

1 chopped tomato

1 chopped onion

2 carrots finely grated

100ml peas

100ml corn of the cob

50ml chopped spring onions
