  • Fry the onion, peppers and garlic over low heat for 10 minutes until softened but not browned.
  • Add the rice, spices and mint or basil.
  • Stir over the heat for 2 to 3 minutes, then add enough water to cover the rice.
  • Bring to a boil, lower the heat and simmer, uncovered for 10 to 15 minutes, or until rice is just tender, but still has a little bite to it.
