DIRECTIONS

  • PREPARATION.
  • Bring adequate (two cups?) amount of salted water to rolling boil, add rice, turmeric & raisins.
  • Stir so that turmeric mixes into rice and can be absorbed, bring rice back to boil, then turn right down to simmer covered for rest of cooking time (10 - 12 minutes?).
  • Once rice is cooked, rinse/drain; set aside to cool.
  • Finely chop both green pepper & white onion.
  • Chunky chop (not fine) half of the peaches from the can.
  • Add pepper, onion, peaches, cayenne pepper/peri peri, chutney, mayonnaise, salt & pepper to rice turning ingredients into rice gently so as not to mash rice.
  • Garnish with parsley.
  • VARIATIONS.
  • •Try adding 1/4 cup brown rice which would need cooking separately as it takes longer to cook. just stir into plain rice before adding other ingredients.
  • •Using a tablespoon of either lemon or lime juice gives this dish a nice twist, or even try using lemon or lime rind for an extra zing.
