Vegetarian Rice Roni With Homemade Rice Roni Mix

This Homemade Rice Roni is a blend of rice and pasta which then cooked in butter, chicken/vegetable stock and seasonings until light and fluffy. A quick easy dish that tastes so good. This Homemade Rice-A-Roni has no artificial ingredients and is absolutely delicious. 

I had this rice roni many times when I stayed abroad.  I loved it , but, here it's not available so made my own.  This is a basic mix, you can have many add ons/flavorful spices to it when you are cooking this as a meal.
This Homemade Rice Roni is the perfect accompaniment to make a complete and delicious meal with chicken, fish, steak or shrimp. I also used this to make this  Colombian Arroz Atollado

200 Grams Spaghetti - broken into pieces
2 Cups Basmati Rice
1 Tablespoon Oil
Wash the rice with a wet cloth and let it dry for some time. In the meantime in a pan heat a tablespoon of oil and fry the spaghetti  for a minute or two only. Cool and mix it with the rice.  
Homemade Rice Roni Mix is ready.  

I made a vegetarian version of this for our lunch.

Add the stock cube, water , give it a light mix and bring this to a rolling boil.  
Now add the rice roni , give it a light stir. Cover, let it be on high flame for a minute then reduce the flame to low and let it cook for 12 -15 minutes giving it a light stir after 5 minutes.  Check for taste and seasoning, add black pepper powder to your taste ( this is optional). 
When liquid has been absorbed, take a test bite to see if rice is cooked through. Add  hot water if necessary and continue cooking if it needs a bit more time.
Delicious Rice Roni is ready to enjoy. 
Serve this with Egg And Cauliflower Salad.
