Recipe- How To Make Turmeric Rice


Hi mum, tired of jollof and fried rice? Hehehe (not that anyone can be) If yes, then you don’t have to think jollof rice or fried rice all the time. Turmeric rice is now here for you. Turmeric which is peppery, warm and has a somewhat bitter taste gives this meal a distinct yellow color. The sight of this meal is nothing but mouth-watering.


  • 2 cup rice
  • 1 pc onions
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp white pepper
  • 2 pcs garlic
  • 2 tsp turmeric powder
  • 2 cup chicken stock
  • 2 cup water
  • 3 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup peas

-Chop the onions and mince the garlic. Set aside.
-Heat the butter in a sauce pan placed over medium heat. Add the onions, garlic, paprika, 1½ teaspoons of turmeric, ½ teaspoon of white pepper and sauté for about a minute.

-Add the rice (washed) and stir continuously for about 2 minutes.
-Add the stock, water and salt to taste then allow to simmer for about 12 minutes or until almost cooked. While the rice is cooking, rinse and drain the peas. Add the peas when the rice is almost cooked and adjust seasoning. Allow to simmer for few minutes or until rice is cooked.
