  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 1 tsp coriander
  • 1 tsp curry powder

  • Pinch of grated nutmeg
  • 8oz basmati rice (rinsed) (ff)

  • 1 400ml of hot water
  • ½ cup frozen peas (ss)(ff)
  • 2 bay leaves
  • *Fresh coriander
  • *1/2 cup raisins (if used then Syn)


Wash the rice several times until the water runs clear then place the rice in a saucepan of boiling salted water with a cinnamon stick , cook with a lid on for 10-12 mins then remove the cinnamon stick, pour the rice through a sieve and then return to the saucepan, replace the lid and allow to steam.

In a frying pan sprayed with Fry Light cook onions, bay leaves, ginger, chillies & ginger until golden. Add the cumin, turmeric, coriander, cinnamon, sweetener & nutmeg, (raisins if required) cook for a further 5 mins.

Add chicken and brown it, cook for 10mins then add the tomatoes, stock, peas and cook until the chicken is cooked. Remove bay leaves.

(At this point you could place the curry in a slow cooker and leave on low for several hours and make the rice when you require the meal.)

Add the chicken to the rice and allow the flavours to infuse with the lid on for 5 mins, mix together and plate up, sprinkle with fresh coriander if required.
