Recipe by Lelandra
READY IN: 35mins


  • 1
    tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 4
    diced medium sized chicken breasts
  • 1
    (12 1/3 ounce) jar of patak's vindaloo cooking sauce
  • 1
    (12 ounce) package fresh mixed vegetables (carrots, broccoli, cauliflower)
  • 1
    cup basmati rice, uncooked
  • 1 34
    cups water


  • Heat 1 tbsp vegetable oil in a large pan.
  • Add diced chicken and stir fry until meat is sealed and browned (approx. 5 mins).
  • While the chicken is cooking, steam the vegetable medley in the bag for 1 1/2 minutes in the microwave.
  • Pour over the jar of Patak's Vindaloo sauce and simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Time it so this step corresponds to when the rice has come to a boil.
  • Alternatively, use prawns, mixed vegetables lamb or beef. Adjust simmer time accordingly.
  • Cook the rice: Add rice to water in saucepan and bring to a boil. Then turn down to low and cook covered for 20 minutes. Until the burner actually achieves low heat, you will need to manage its desire to boil over and make a mess of your stove.
