800g long grain rice
1,5 litres of water or stock (± 1 stock cube, depending on how much meat is used)
1 teaspoon each of ground white and black pepper
Put tomatoes into the blender and set aside.
Then, in a non-stick pot, fry pre-cooked meat in oil. When these have browned, remove and set aside.
Add onions and fry until soft before adding garlic and blended tomatoes.

Stir and mix well before covering.
Cook on low heat for ± 20 minutes.
Add vegetables and mix well.
Add about 1 cup more of water and continue to cook on low heat until rice is done.
