Want to make some homemade Nando’s? Then this homemade Nando’s spicy rice recipe is just for you! The best part? It’s a one-pot rice recipe so no clutter of dishes and pans to look forward to washing at the end.

Tasty, mildly spicy and healthy, this popular dish is perfectly paired alongside some chicken or substantially good that it can be eaten even on its own.

This popular recipe is so easy to make that you’ll never even bother with plain old, boiled rice anymore. An authentic homemade Nando’s rice recipe that will surely become a family favourite.

I am a big fan of Nando’s food. There is just something about that gorgeous peri spiced chicken that you can’t get anywhere else. Not only do I adore their famous chicken, but I love their Nando’s spicy rice.

Now, if you have been following my food blog for a while now you would know that rice is one of my favourite meals to have. This rice recipe is another one of my favourites!

This is my first recipe for recreating Nando’s food at home. After a lot of trial and error, I can proudly say that this rice recipe is the perfect copycat of the famous Nando’s side. Definitely going to be making a lot more of Nando’s recipes, so be sure to stay around!

This recipe is very different to my typical rice recipes which range from pilaus to biryanis as it is a lot more vibrant in colour and is loaded with my all-time favourite vegetable. Yep, you guessed it. Bell peppers! If you haven’t gathered by now capsicum is very much loved by me. I would use this vegetable in everything I could.
