Rated as 4.25 out of 5 Stars

"A great supporting dish to chicken! I served the rice with chicken tikka, but it goes well with many chicken dishes, or whatever meat you find fit."

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add onion; cook and stir until golden, about 5 minutes. Add water, turmeric, and bouillon cube; stir well to combine. Add peas and carrots. Bring to a boil; stir in rice. Reduce heat and cook, covered, until rice is tender and liquid has been absorbed, about 15 minutes.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • I'm not sure what type of rice I use, I think it's medium-grain. Whatever type of rice you use, cook it as you normally would.
  • If you don't use the chicken bouillon, use chicken broth instead. Don't forget to add salt.
  • For a lighter version: swap oil for butter, or use cooking spray, or leave it out completely. Vegetarians can substitute vegetable oil for the butter, and use vegetable bouillon instead of chicken.

We thought this was yummy! Just a few things...I used 1 cup of peas and carrots b/c the kids love them. Also, I was running low on tumeric, so I only used a teaspoon, but that seemed fine for us...

I think 1 tablespoon of turmeric was too much for this recipe; it tasted very bitter.

Husband approved

Made as written and I probably wouldn't change a thing. I might use broth in place of the bouillon as mentioned in the footnotes as I usually do but I honestly think it needed the salt the bouil...

Real easy to make and tasted great. I just used 2 teaspoons of turmeric.

thank you so much for this recipe. I thought I needed more ingredients but this was perfect thank you

Will be making this again. I might add a little more water but it was good as is.

Very quick and easy side dish. My husband loved it!
