Fiery Chicken and Rice Stoup

🕒 Prep time 10 minutes 🍳 Cooking time 35 minutes


So here is a one pot winter warmer called a ‘Stoup’ which is a thicker recipe than a soup but thinner than a stew. This fiery stoup is ideal served on a cold winter evening providing a hearty meal that can be served with naan breads to scoop up the delicious sauce.

For variety you can use different curry pastes so if you like it extra spicy why not try using a madras or Balti curry paste or add a few slices of fresh chillies.

2 tbsp vegetable oil
1 Medium onion , finely chopped
1 Large carrot, peeled and diced
300g potato , diced
2 Cloves garlic, crushed

1.2 Litres hot chicken stock
75g Basmati rice , rinsed
