How to Cook Perfect Rice


In a large lidded frying pan or casserole dish pan fry the onion in a dash of oil. Add the garlic, ginger and curry powder and toss for 1-2 minutes.

Stir in lemon juice, peppercorns, tomatoes and 1 cup water (reduce to 1/2 cup if using the slow cooker) and bring to the boil. Add the meat and lower the heat.

Cover and simmer over a very gentle heat for 1 1/2 hours, or in the slow cooker for 5-7 hours on low until tender. Season with salt if wished.

Serve with rice and garnish with coconut.
