#CookandChomp Peri Peri Rice

Following my previous Peri Peri egg bhurji, I decided to make Nando’s style Peri Peri rice this time. I love rice but don’t really cook them without supervision – so as a pro tip, make sure you know the rice you are cooking, ergo – know for how long the rice needs to be soaked and how much water is required to cook it.

The rice are tangy and flavorsome but don’t hesitate to add something of your own, it is always great to add tweaks to make a recipe your own!
