3 Add rice

Once softened, add the arborio rice, a pinch of turmeric and the garlic. Cook for 1 min further, stirring to coat the grains in the oil. Increase the heat to medium.

4 Simmer

Add the tomatoes and 1/3 of the stock and stir continuously until it has absorbed. Continue to add the stock, a little at a time for 20 min or until all the stock is absorbed and the rice is cooked 'al dente'. Once al dente, add the peas and cook for 3 min further.
