  1. In a medium saucepan, combine the rice and water. Bring the mixture to a boil over high heat. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low, cover with a lid, and let it steam until the rice is tender, which should take about 20 minutes.
  2. While the rice is cooking, use a blender to grind the peanuts and set them aside. In a skillet, melt the margarine over medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring frequently, until it softens and turns a golden brown, approximately 10 minutes. Add the ginger, carrots, and a pinch of salt. Reduce the heat to low, cover the skillet, and let the mixture steam for 5 minutes. Stir in the cayenne pepper and ground peanuts.
  3. Once the rice is cooked, add it to the skillet and gently mix it with the other ingredients. Garnish the dish with chopped cilantro before serving.


  • – For added flavor, consider using vegetable broth instead of water.
    – You can substitute brown rice for a healthier option, but adjust the cooking time accordingly.
    – Garnish with fresh herbs like parsley or cilantro for an extra burst of freshness.
