  • 65g basmati rice

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric

  • 1 small knob of butter / olive oil

  • 130ml of water from a recently boiled kettle (or 130ml vegetable / chicken stock)


  • Rinse the rice well with cold water and add to a pot over medium heat with the knob of butter / dash of olive oil. Stir to melt the butter / heat the oil and so all the rice is covered in the butter / oil.
  • Add the turmeric and stir again so all the grains of rice are coated in the golden powder.
  • Add the water / stock and bring to the boil.
  • Lower the heat, cover the pot with a lid and leave to cook for 10 minutes over a low – medium heat. Do not stir during this time.
  • When the rice is cooked, remove the pot from the heat and remove the lid. Fluff the rice up with a fork and then cover the pot with a clean tea towel for 10 minutes.
  • Fluff the rice up with your fork again and serve.
