  1. Soak the rice in cold water for at least 30 minutes, then drain well.
  2. Heat the oil in a saucepan, add the onion, carrot and garlic and cook gently for 3-4 minutes.
  3. Add the rice and spices and cook for a further 2 minutes, stirring constantly so that all the grains of rice are coated in the oil.
  4. Pour in the stock and add the bay leaves and seasoning.
  5. Bring to the boil, reduce the heat and simmer, covered, until the rice is cooked and has absorbed the liquid - about 12-15 minutes.
  6. Discard the bay leaves and stir in the nuts.
  7. Adjust seasoning and garnish with the coriander leaves.


Use any nuts you like and add chillies and/or other vegetables. For extra piquancy, substitute the peanut oil with culinary mustard oil.
