Add long grain basmati rice. Stir and fry for another 2 minutes.

Add the tomato paste.

Then we add the hot broth. Stir and bring to a light boil.

Add carrots and red pepper cut into small cubes. If you use frozen corn and peas, then put them in the pan at the same time! And if corn and peas are canned, then add them in 10 minutes. Boil everything on a low heat (stirring occasionally).
