Ingredients

Method

1

Begin by washing the rice in several changes of water, then drain. Put the rice in a bowl, cover with fresh water and leave to soak for 30 minutes; then drain again.

2

Next, heat the butter in a large heavy-based frying pan over a mediumhigh heat. When it's hot, add the mustard seeds.

3

As soon as they begin to pop – a matter of seconds – add the onion and fry until translucent and browning. Then add the chilli, carrot and peas and garlic, and stir.

4

Add the turmeric and garam masala and stir for one minute.

5

Add the ginger and sauté, stirring, for another minute then drain the rice and add it to the pan.

6

Reduce the heat to medium-low and stir the rice very gently to mix it into the other ingredients and coat it in the oil and spices. Cook this for 2 minutes.

7

Add the salt and stock and bring to the boil, then throw in the cardamom pods and cinnamon stick.

8

Cover the pan with a lid, turn the heat very low and cook for 25 minutes. After this time try a grain of rice to see if it's cooked – cook for a few more minutes, if necessary.

9

When ready to serve, throw the cashew nuts and raisins into the rice, stir through and serve.
