8 people 15 minutes 5 minutes


  • 450 g SuperValu Basmati Rice
  • 1 knob SuperValu Butter plus extra to serve
  • 3 sprigs SuperValu Fresh Thyme
  • 1 medium SuperValu Onion finely chopped
  • 2 pinch SuperValu Saffron
  • 0 - SuperValu Salt
  • 600 ml Water


  1. Melt the butter in a frying pan over a medium heat and add the onion. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, until softened. Add the rice and stir until the grains are coated in the butter.
  2. Pour in the stock or water, saff ron, salt and thyme. Bring to the boil and then cover with a tight-fitting lid. Turn the heat down to low and leave to cook for 10 minutes before turning off the heat. Don’t remove the lid, just leave the rice to continue cooking in the pan for about 5 minutes.
  3. The rice should have absorbed all the water and will just need fluffing up with a fork. Remove the thyme sprigs and add a knob of butter before serving.
