This is the meal I make at the end of a long day when I’m tired and starving and need a really satisfying dinner..
There are only 6 ingredients, it takes almost no effort and tastes soooo good in the bargain!!
Addictive, trust me!
You will need – broth or stock of some sort, jasmine rice, ginger, garlic, salt and oil.
I know what you’re thinking… The first picture has a big carton of beef broth – not chicken, in spite of the title.
You see, I ran out of chicken stock (both the home made and the store bought variety) and had to resort to using beef broth, and boy, was it a good substitute or what!
So I’ve come to the conclusion that this works perfectly well with either chicken, beef or vegetable stock…
Heat the oil in a heavy pot (so the rice can cook evenly and not burn)
Grate some ginger into the pot.. I like leaving the skin on – I’ve found that there’s a whole lot of flavor that way!
Saute the ginger and garlic for a few minutes on medium flame. Attempt not the burn the whole thing like I did.
You have to be quite an idiot if you managed to burn it, but if you did, welcome to the club my friend!
Wash the jasmine rice and add it to the sauted ginger and garlic, and fry the rice for 2 minutes…
Add the broth/stock and salt. Cover and cook for about 30 minutes on a medium flame (or until all the stock is gone and the rice is cooked). Fluff the rice with a fork.
Serve with salad (I like a mix of cucumber, radish and sweet peppers) and sambal oelek..
vegetable oil – 1 tbsp
ginger – 1 inch
garlic – 4 cloves
beef/chicken/vegetable stock – 2 cups
jasmine rice – 1 cup
salt – as needed
Wash jasmine rice once. Heat oil in a heavy pot. Grate ginger and garlic into the pot and saute on medium heat for 5 minutes. Then add the jasmine rice and saute for another 2 minutes.
Add the broth and salt. Cover and cook on medium heat until the rice is cooked.
