This tasty Indian-inspired dish is faster than a takeaway
Nutrition per serving
250g basmati rice
400g special mixed frozen vegetables
a generous handful of raisins
1 vegetable stock cube
2 tbsp korma curry paste
a generous handful of roasted salted cashew nuts
Boil the kettle. Get out a large microwaveable bowl and pile in the rice, veg and raisins.
Pour 600ml/1 pint boiling water over the rice mixture and crumble in the stock cube, then stir in the curry paste. Cover the bowl with cling film, leaving a small gap at the side to let out the steam. Cook on full power (850 watts) for 12 minutes – if your microwave is less powerful, add 2 minutes.
Remove from the microwave and stand, still covered, for 5 minutes to complete the cooking – if you don’t let it stand the rice will be too nutty. Fluff up the rice, scatter with cashews and serve.
