King’s College Budo Rice Recipe

This recipe shows how to prepare rice “KCB-style”, with canned fish. King’s College, Budo, is a cool, mixed, boarding secondary school, near Kampala. Students, at least a while ago, used to find ways of making use of the canned fish they got after working on the school farm. The fish & other food items were donated by the World Food program (WFP). This is one of the ways the fish was used.

Ingredients

For:  3 servings

Instructions

  1. The basic ingredients apart from rice are canned fish (normally mackerels or sardines), onions, tomatoes and curry, which were most readily available. In this case, "standards" are raised a little bit by adding other ingredients. If adding fresh peas/carrots, etc, pre-cook them as they might otherwise not get ready. Decant and set aside.
  2. Chop onions, tomatoes, paprika and garlic (if available)
  3. Use the canned fish oil to fry onions and paprika, until they are glassy
  4. add the fish and then rice and stir-fry on high heat for about 5 minutes - add the mixed vegetables ...
  5. add the tomatoes, curry and pepper and continue stir-frying for a while
  6. add at most twice the volume of rice of water & salt to taste
  7. bring to the boil and then cover & cook on LOW heat until the rice is ready/"dry"

Recipe notes

A 300g can of tomatoes may be used instead of fresh tomatoes BUT, in that case reduce the water used.
The taste can be enriched or varied by adding other ingredients like a Maggi Bouillon Cube or playing around with different spices.

      Yes, it’s quite easy. I mostly prepare enough for at least 2 meals. I’m sure it can be improved/varied, though by probably using more fish + playing with spices.

      Curry, black pepper & garlic where used, but as suggested there, feel free to use other or your favorite spices for rice dishes. Check out the written recipe on our site for more details. Link shown is shown above under “More info”.

      That looks easy. Seems a perfect one-pot meal. I sometimes do a week’s meals at a time and freeze them in single-meal microwaveable containers for those days when i have no time to cook. This seems just perfect for that.
