  •  Water or Stock– 1 cup
  •  Maggi – 2 cubes
  •  Salt- To taste
  •  Curry, thyme and nutmeg – 1/2 teaspoon each

  •  Onion (chopped) – 1/2 medium
  •  Mixed vegetables – 1 cup
  •  Green pepper (chopped) – 1 large
  •  Shrimps pre cooked (optional) – 1 cup


  • Place a pot on medium heat, add in the coconut milk, water, salt, curry, thyme, nutmeg and one maggi cube. Combine. Cover the pot until the mixture comes to a rolling boil.
  • Add in the rice. Simmer on low-medium heat until rice is cooked and there is no more liquid in the rice. Set aside to cool.
  • In a large skillet, heat up the oil. Add in the chopped onions, green pepper , maggi and mixed vegetable. Stir fry for 2-3 minutes.
