Makes: enough for 4
Takes about 15 mins to cook and 30 mins to cook


1. Using the bridge cutting technique, cut the onions in half and peel away the onion skin. Using the claw cutting technique, cut thinly slice the onions.

2. Bash the garlic cloves and peel away the skin. Heat the oil in a saucepan (you need a pan with a lid), fry the onion and garlic for a few minutes until soft.

3. Add curry powder and stir for a minute. Add the rice and stock, cover and simmer for 15 minutes – a few mins before the end – add the frozen peas. Take the lid off to check all the liquid has been absorbed, then take off the heat and leave for another 10 mins for the rice and veg to finish cooking.

4. Meanwhile, roughly chop the nuts (or bash with a rolling pin if easier) and using scissors chop the herbs into small pieces.
