  • 280 g basmati rice
  • 4 pak choi baby or 2 medium clean and chopped
  • 2 yellow onions peeled and cut into thin strips
  • 1 Garlic peeled and laminated
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • Cardamom powder ginger and salt to taste
  • Soy sauce 

Preparing the spices

Bring a pot with plenty of water and salt to boil.
Prepare all ingredients previously mentioned.
Heat the olive oil in a large skillet and add the onion with a pinch of salt. 
Let the onion cook over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until it is golden brown.
Meanwhile, when the water has started to boil, add the rice and cook for the time indicated on the container. Once cooked, strain and reserve.
When the onion has turned a nice golden hue, add the garlic. Cook for a couple of minutes, stirring occasionally so it doesn’t burn.
Turn up the heat and add the pak choi and a pinch of salt. Sauté for a couple of minutes, but not too long so it doesn’t get overdone.
Add the rice, sauté over high heat for a couple of minutes and add the ginger and cardamom powder. Add a few drops of soy sauce, but without overdoing it so that the flavours are well balanced. Taste and finish adjusting with more spices, soy sauce or salt.

You can also add a  tacos of salmon or chicken to have  the protein content.
