Curried rice (slimming world friendly)

  I always used to make a variation of this dish as a side dish for when we had a BBQ but used to use a bought curry paste which is quite high in syns so thought I needed to find how to make a syn free version of this. By using the tomato puree and stock it seems to make the curry powder more like a paste but with no oil :)

  I serve this dish cold but its nice warm too and although always used to serve it as a side dish I'm sure you could put some chicken in it and maybe a side salad or mix some cooked peas in it to make it a main meal.

Curried Rice

250g (dry weight) white rice
1 large onion (chopped)
1 clove garlic (crushed)
2 tbsp medium curry powder (more if you like it very hot less if you dont like it too spicy)
2 tbsp tomato puree
1/4 pt vegetable stock
spray oil 


Cook the rice according to packet instructions and set aside.

In a large frying pan sprayed with the spray oil fry the onion over a low heat for a few minutes until soft then add the garlic and fry for another minute. Add in the stock, tomato puree and curry powder and mix well and cook for another couple of  minutes.

Add the in the cooked rice and mix very well till all the rice is coated with the curry mixture.
