A very simple fried rice dish with onion. An easy way to elevate plain rice into something more flavour.


  • 4 tablespoons (75ml) vegetable oil
  • ½ medium (50g) onion peeled and finely diced
  • ½ teaspoon (4g) salt
  • ½ teaspoon (1g) kasoori methi
  • 250g cooked basmati rice
  • handful of chopped fresh coriander


  1. Heat a wok on a medium high heat and add the vegetable oil.

  2. Fry the onion, salt and kasoori methi for around 5 minutes stirring occasionally until the onions turn translucent and soften.

  3. Add the cooked basmati rice and stir so that all the rice is coated in the spice. Cook for another 5 minutes until the rice is piping hot.

  4. Add the coriander and stir through, then serve.


  1. Add sliced green chillies with the onion to give a fresh and spicy kick.
