  • 1 bay leaf
  • 3 cardamom pods
  • small cinnamon stick

  • 850ml chicken stock

  1. Soak 300g basmati rice in warm water, then wash in cold until the water runs clear.
  2. Heat 25g butter in a saucepan and cook 1 finely sliced large onion with 1 bay leaf, 3 cardamom pods and 1 small cinnamon stick for 10 mins.
  3. Sprinkle in 1 tsp turmeric, then add 4 chicken breasts, cut into large chunks, and 4 tbsp curry paste. Cook until aromatic.
  4. Stir the rice into the pan with 85g raisins, then pour over 850ml chicken stock.
