Knorr Mild Breyani Rice Mate


The Knorr Rice Mate range is an easy-to-prepare meal solution of pre-cooked rice and spices that takes the effort out of creating delicious weekday dinners. A 275g box of Knorr Rice Mate Mild Breyani offers a convenient way to prepare a wonderful South African classic without the hassle and time. Simply add chicken and onions to the rice or opt for a vegetarian version instead.

The Mild Breyani variant comes with a portioned seasoning sachet filled with cardamon, ginger, turmeric, and other key spices. You’ll also find a pre-measured bag of fluffy rice. Together, these create the base for a tasty mild breyani.

Key Benefits:

• Quick to prepare

• Easy to use

• Flavourful

• Vegetarian friendly


Knorr Rice Mate Mild Breyani is the answer to simplifying the preparation of this iconic meal and halving the time it takes to cook, without compromising on flavour. It has the full-bodied taste of a breyani that has been cooked from scratch. Rice Mate Breyani has a mild taste which adds just a little zing, perfect for the younger members of the family or those who like a gentler heat.

Creating a meal with Rice Mate is as simple as frying chopped onions in a little oil, adding vegetables like carrots, celery, and baby potatoes for a vegetarian breyani, or lamb goulash or chicken breasts for a meatier version. After browning, sprinkle over the seasoning mix. Pour in the sachet of rice and leave to simmer until all the liquid has been absorbed.

Throw in some fresh coriander and serve with a dollop of plain yoghurt on the side. You can add slices of banana or a sprinkle of desiccated coconut if you wish. Cooking a traditional breyani has never been this easy.
