How to Make Tanzanina Vegetable rice

  • Wash the rice and completely drain water.
  • Heat the oil in a large saucepan and fry the onion for a few minutes over a moderate heat until soft.
  • Add the rice and stir-fry for about 10 minutes, taking care to keep stirring all the time so that the rice doesn't stick to the pan.

  • Scatter the corn over the rice, then spread the pepper on top and lastly sprinkle over the grated carrot.
