Our 20 minute recipe

  • 1.

    Boil 500ml of water in your kettle. Heat a little oil in a lidded saucepan over a medium heat, then tip in the rice and stir-fry for 1 min. Add the 500ml boiling water and the Chicken Stock and stir well. Bring it back to the boil then reduce the heat to low, cover with a lid and let it simmer for 10-12 mins, then remove from the heat and keep covered.

  • 2.

    Heat a little oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat, then add the onion and stir fry for 4 mins. Add the meatballs, sprinkle the Cajun Seasoning evenly over them and stir fry until the meatballs are brown on all sides. (Drizzle a little more oil over the meatballs if they're looking dry.)

  • 3.

    Add the peppers and fry for 3 mins to soften. Pour in the passata and the Hot Pepper Sauce and mix well, then let the sauce cook over a medium heat for 8-10 mins. Taste the sauce, and add 1 tsp of sugar, if desired (see tip at the top of the card).

  • 4.

    Serve the rice with the meatballs and hot sauce on top with some soured cream on the side (if having) which will cool it all down if it's a little spicy for some.

This was very nice. I was a bit worried that it was going to be too hot but it was fine for us. I found it a bit difficult to cook as the recipe says. Once the meatballs are in the pan. You can't really stir it that much or you will break them up. Next time I would brown them in a baking tray in the oven and then add the sauce to them

Delicious - very spicey but loved the flavour. I did pasta instead and will definitely order again.

For a meatball and tomatoe base sauce (which is all this really is) it was absolutely awesome. One of the best recipes on here do far will definately get again
