Try out my Authentic One Pot Nando's Peri Peri Rice made using the freshest of ingredients to make it the perfect side for your Nando's Fakeaway meal.
I think everyone loves Nando's, I mean what's not to love? That flame grilled Peri-peri chicken is what is loved by many of us, an amazing explosion of flavours on the palette.
But as well as that amazing chicken they also do some delicious sides, like their spiced rice and this One Pot Nando's Peri Peri Rice I have created here, is pretty authentic. It taste so good, you will want to eat it just as it is, and why not? Add some protein, like chicken or shrimp and there is no reason why you can't turn this into a complete meal.
I use the freshest of ingredients to make an amazing paste that add's the best of flavours to this rice. Fresh chilli, garlic, herbs, along with a blend of spices such as paprika, cumin and of course lastly that fresh citrus flavour of lemon juice and zest.
To make the paste I use for my One Pot Nando's Peri Peri Rice, you will need either a:
I have a granite one like this Andrew James Traditional Mortar and Pestle. I love it for making marinades for meats, or pastes for curries etc, as you start grinding all those spices, herbs etc, the aroma that comes out is enough to leave you salivating for dinner, before you even get starting cooking. There is something rather theraputic about grind all the spices too. Great for relieving some stress.
and pestle to grind all the ingredients up into that flavour explosion to add into the rice. If you don't have either, you can just chop the ingredients really finely, but grinding them to a paste, really helps bring out all those flavours.
