  • 1 teaspoon salt

What To Do

  • Wash the rice thoroughly until the water runs clear. Set aside to dry
  • Place a wok or similar pan over a medium heat and add the olive oil
  • Fry the onions and garlic for about 3 minutes
  • Add the rice and stir-fry for an additional 3-4 minutes, making sure that the rice does not stick to the bottom of the pan
  • Add the salt and 475ml of boiling water to the rice. Place a lid on the wok and cook on medium heat for 8 minutes
