Welcome to another Habbies-How-To series.

So I have a confession about Basmati Rice. I don't know how to eat plain basmati rice (I wish someone else can relate with this.) So instead of rejecting plain rice, why not try making it a different way? I've tried jollof basmati, fried basmati rice and beyond reasonable doubts, in both scenarios, the taste was never displeasing to the mouth.

Here's another way to have your rice without all the "mende-mende"

Ingredients for 4 servings

2 tablespoon of canola oil
3 garlic cloves, crushed
1 medium sized onion, diced
2 cups of basmati rice
Knorr cubes
fresh herbs (mints, parsley)
2 tablespoons of Curry powder


  • First, heat the oil in a pot, add the crushed garlic and onions. saute for about 30 seconds
  • Now add basmati rice, the herbs, curry and other seasoning. Stir-fry for about 2-3 minutes
  • Stir in water (preferably hot water), reduce heat and allow rice to steam so well, until well cooked.
  • Serve with any stew/ sauce of choice.
