Concoction Rice is a modern dish usually cooked among young Nigerians, who are single, college and university students. They created this dish out of the need for a quick meal as against the tedious ingredients and preparation of Jollof or Fried Rice.
It takes 45 minutes to 1 hour to prepare this dish.
2 Cups of Rice (any rice you prefer, I prefer Brown/ Ofada Rice)
4 Tablespoons vegetable oil or Olive oil
1/2 Cup Cray Fish (sun dried shrimps) or fresh Shrimps
1 medium size onion
1 Tablespoon ground pepper
Salt to taste
1 knoor cube
Wash rice and parboil for 15 minutes over moderate heat. Drain off water and set aside.
Pick the Cray fish clean and wash under running tap
Cut up the onion into tiny pieces
Take another pot, measure into it the oil, add the onion. Allow to cook for about 2 minutes over moderate heat.
Add Cray Fish, turn all together for another 1-2 minutes, add the ground pepper, Knoor and Rice. Add water, about 2-3 cups, just enough to cook the Rice. Add salt as you desire. Keep turning every 3 minutes for another 20 minutes. When the water dries up taste the rice if it soft, then your Rice is cooked. If not add a little more water to allow the rice to cook.
Serve with already cooked chicken, meat or salad.
This serves four people. Enjoy your Rice.
