   Soak the kndney in warm salted water for 30 mins.
   Wash the mushrooms, peel and cut into pieces, chop the
   stalks finely.  Cut the kidney into small pieces,
   removing the hard core and fat.  Peel and chop the
   onion. Heat the fat in a big saucepan and fry the
   onion and kidney and mushrooms for five mins, turning
   to cook evenly.  Push to one side and stir in the
   flour and seasonings, then stir in half the stock and
   stir until it boils.
    Cover and simmer gently for 3/4 hour, then add the
   well washed rice and remainder of stock.  Continue to
   simmer gently for 12-15 mins more or until rice is
   tender.  Skim if necessary and serve.
