Flavoured rice
In Seychelles rice is eaten everyday with that in mind I often spice up the rice to add a new dimension to it.For instruction on how to cook rice please check earlier posting.For this dish do the absorption method

Cumin and turmeric scented Rice

Serves 4.

300g/ 10 oz basmati

20 fl oz/1pt of water

1tsp of cumin seeds

1 onion peeled and chopped into small cubes

1tbsp of veg/sunflower oil

1tsp turmeric powder

Heat the oil until it is very hot add the cumin seeds, they are ready when they start to pop and the oil smells very aromatic add the onions and fry until golden brown add the turmeric and swirl.

Add the rice and coat in this very flavoursome oil add the water continue to cook as the instructions for the absorption method in earlier posts.serve hot with any dish.

Hello Heldasland,

In the last few months, you may remember receiving an email invitation to become a part of the Foodbuzz Featured Publisher Program. With all the recipe-writing and food photography to be completed, we know emails can easily get lost in the shuffle, so Foodbuzz would like to re-extend our offer of inviting you to be a part of our food blogger network. I would love to send you more details about the program, so if you are interested, please email me at
