  • 2 tablespoon vegetable oil or coconut oil
  • 2 cup diced chicken meat or sausage
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1 green sweet pepper diced
  • 1 small onion diced
  • 2 cup baby corn chopped
  • 1 cup sliced water chestnuts
  • 1 tbs ginger grated
  • 2 cup rice
  • 4 cup chicken stock or water
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • ¼ cup parmesan cheese optional
  • ¼ tsp. salt or to taste


  • Boil the rice with the turmeric powder, bay leaves and ¼ teaspoon salt. Drain and set aside.
  • In a pot, heat 2 tablespoon oil. Saute the ginger, onion and garlic until tender. Note: You can add the bay leaves ( from the rice before) to push the flavour.
  • Add the baby corn and water chestnuts. Stir. Then add the sweet peppers, mushrooms and diced sausage or meat of choice. Stir for 1 minute or until meat is cooked through. Note: I’m adding that extra note for those of you who would like to try a different meat like shrimp or mussels. In my case I used chicken salami so not much cooking would be required.
  • Lower flame, add rice and mix well. Adjust salt if desired. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese and mix (optional). Serve hot.
