From a few ingredients you really can produce a good,filling and tasty meal.This is one of those recipes that fits the bill.Made from items that are generally found lurking around the average kitchen also makes it very practical.I added some finely diced leek and some sweetcorn to mine,just for personal preference,and also as this is one of those recipes that is totally open to individual interpretation. The cornflake topping didn't really do it for me...it just seemed wrong on top of the rice and veg,but some of you may like that. A solid 4 stars for you NELady,thanks for sharing.Made for PRMR.
