Nando's Inspired Syn Free Spicy Rice

Hello again,

I'm back briefly with the other half of tonight's dinner - Nando's Inspired Syn Free Spicy Rice!  I have had this before at Nando's but it was ages ago and I can't remember how close it was to this recipe but in any case it's very tasty and best of all it's Syn Free!

I found this recipe on Pinterest and it originally came from a blog called Slimming World Survival it's perfect served with the Piri-piri Chicken recipe I posted!  The recipe makes 2 portions but it's easy enough to double the quantities for 4.

Nando's Inspired Syn Free Spicy Rice

Serves 2

Syn Free on Slimming World


150g Rice of your choice
500 - 600ml of Water
2 Chicken stock cubes
1/2 an onion - finely chopped
1/2 finely chopped red pepper
A handful of frozen peas
1 green chilli or chilli of your choice deseeded and finely chopped
Chilli power - depending how spicy you like it
1 tsp Cumin
1 tsp Paprika
1/2 tsp Turmeric


  1. On a medium heat spray a pan with some frylight and dry fry the rice for 3-4 minutes, stirring frequently.
  2. Once the rice starts to brown slightly, Add some water, (just the bare minimum to cover the rice) chilli power, crush chicken stock cube and turmeric.
  3. Bring to the boil and then simmer gently until the rice is fully cooked and all the water has been absorbed. Stir often to avoid it sticking to the pan!
  4. In a separate pan sprayed with fry light, add the onion, red pepper, frozen peas, green chilli, crushed chicken stock cube, cumin and paprika.
  5. Once everything is cooked add to the rice and stir thoroughly.
That's all from me tonight it's definitely bed o'clock!
