Tuesday's Letters Eat 31: 'R' is for Rice, Sticky Chilli

This is a quick and spicy dish. Jamie Oliver serves it with seared scallops, but I think it would be great with fish, chicken or even some sliced Asian-style beef or pork. I ate it with some salad for my lunch!!

It takes about 20 minutes from start to finish, so it is friendly fast food. I thought I had spring onions but alas, no, so I used finely sliced red onion and I added a small chilli (de-seeded) for a little extra zing. That's the good thing about this recipe, you can add whatever takes your fancy.


Jamie Oliver's Sticky Chilli Rice   serves 2 as a snack, or 4 as a side

  • 1 1/2 cups basmati rice
  • 2 1/4 cups of water -  refer to your rice packet for absorption method amounts
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tbspn soy sauce
  • 1 tbspn sesame oil
  • 3 or 4 spring onions, finely sliced
  • 1/2 a lemon, juiced
  • parsley or coriander, chopped
  • sweet chilli sauce
  • pepper and salt, if needed


Rice cooks
Follow the instructions on the packet for the Absorption Method and set your rice cooking. My packet said to bring the rice and water to the boil in a pan and then to cover and simmer on a low heat for 14 minutes. I added a layer of baking paper under the lid, just to make sure it was well sealed.

Set the timer for 5 minutes before the rice is ready. When the timer rings, gently fork the rice to fluff it up.

Fork through
Whisk the spring onions, oil, soy and eggs together, and then pour in the egg mixture along with the lemon juice. Return to the heat and cover. Cook for a further 4 or 5 minutes.

Flavour the rice
Fold through the chopped parsley/ coriander.

Almost ricey ready
To serve, spoon into a dish and season. Garnish with a little extra green and top with some sweet chilli sauce.

Spicy Rice



That's a great recipe & so easy. I must try this. I usually fry my cooked rice with eggs just like fried rice.


Ooh delicious and easy! Thanks for sharing this one!


YUM! That looks easy and delicious (good old jamie oliver) My son and his girlfriend have decided to gomeat free for a while so I'm on the look out for this kind of recipe- fish is still on their menu but not chicken.


Yum! Love how adaptable those Jamie recipes are. I'll have to make this as I think I can use the Sweet Chile-Garlic Sauce I recently made =)


Looks yummy!


This looks good. I love rice dishes, but unfortunately even though I love chilli I'm allergic to it :(
