Need a Rice Recipie

Hello guys.

I eat bastmati rice with 2 meals a day. Have been eating it plain for a long time now. Occasionally I add a chicken stock cube. (daring I know)

I'm on a bulk.

I cook rice in a rice cooker which is set on a timer in the morning.

I am looking for new ways to flavor my rice.

I need ways which can be done in the rice cooker as I have found it to be very convenient.

Much appreciated if the gormets out there can share an idea or three!!

    Pilau Rice Seasoning is great i find but i dont know whether you can add it to a rice steamer. You could always cook your rice then crack an egg or two over it and pan fry it with some spring onions for egg fried rice, combine it with a pinch of chinese 5 spice and some soy sauce and bobs your uncle!

    Another one i quite like is BBQ sauce mixed in with the rice when its cooked and cooled. You can also get a jar of Thai 7 Spice and combine that with a little olive oil in a wok and add the rice to it and stir it up, also i think the Pilau seasoning will work this way too come to think of it. Also if money isnt an issue you could try it with saffron infused into the steamer which will add a gentle flavour but it aint cheap.

    Another weird one is ketchup. Another one is chilli sauce which is quite nice. Yet another one is mexican seasoning sachets, simply mix some of this with the rice in a little olive oil as above and you have mexican rice!
    Hope this helps

    Great stuff.. quite a few ideas there thanks.

    I am likeing the idea of mexican spice sachets.. will look round tescos for something like that.

    I like all of the ideas really, but I cook the rice first thing in the morning and then eat it cold during the day. This means that I dont really have the time to do any 'cooking' to it, so the flavoring really needs to come from something I can throw in the rice cooker along with the rice.

    I have tried cooking it in the evening.. lots more time but the rice is a bit hard by next day

    Plain old curry powder
    Mixed chopped veg, flax oil
    Cottage Cheese

    One of my favourites is to mix it up with frozen steamed spinach, mixes really nice together.

    Just gotta get creative

    if its hard this is due to the lack of water that gets absorbved b the fridge. An easy way round this is to add 1 teaspoon of olive oil and mix it in with the rice and it will stay nice and soft

    I have a rice steamer at home, and put spices in before the rice cooks, a nice one is the chinese five spice or thai 7 spice, their not hot so you can add dried chilli or chilli powder if you want to add heat.

    I don't know how much time you have but i add peas/ sweetcorn or frozen veg straight after it has cooked and leave it on keep warm for the veg to defrost (stirring it in before leaving it)

    other sauces that are good for after cooking are soya source/ fish sauce/ oyster sauce really nice flavours and if you leave the rice to cool and add it to veg in the evening for a stir fry, tastes just as great the next day for work cold or hot

    Add freshly chopped dill to basmati!

    When Paul was dieting for his show's he would put the rice cooker on when he got up and cook his rice and would put his chopped chicken breast on top to cook threw too.

    Try adding some broad beans (fresh or tinned rinsed....not the dried) to your rice and season with ground coriander, cumin & cinamon and a drizzle of olive oil.

    Chop coriander, lemongrass, cruched garlic, black pepper and a handful of frozen peas.
