I am a bit nervous about posting this recipe. I suppose its because I have changed it so much over the years, to suit the family, and its in my head now for so long and not on paper to copy out!When I first got married and my parents gave us a microwave for a wedding present.......so mum and I went to classes to learn how to use a microwave. This was the first recipe we made, and I have made it ever since, with many changes over the years to suit kids and relations!It is such a versatile recipe, the basics are there and you just add what you like! Because I make this out of my head (apart from the basics) I am using what I add as ingredients, and if the ingredients need cooking, I just nuke em for a few minutes...such as th onion and peas.Saffron is good to get a yellow colour to the salad.I have served this rice both hot and cold, and it has never failed. One thing I never leave out is the onion and eggs., but its all up to you! ;-)I hope you can understand this recipe, its hard when you have been making something for years and try to put it down pat!
