TWC 06 Recipe 2 Yellow Rice hero

Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan over a medium-high heat. Add the onion, garlic, tumeric and cumin and sauté until the onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. Reduce the heat to low, add the rice and chilli, and cook for 2 minutes, stirring to coat the rice.

Add the corn and chicken stock and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover, and simmer for 15 minutes, or until almost all the liquid has been absorbed.

Remove from the heat and gently fold in the tomatoes, mango, yellow pepper and chives. Season to taste.
