Ingredients

  • 1 dessertspoon garam masala
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 160 g onion
  • 150 g sweetcorn frozen
  • 150 g peas
  • 20 g tomato puree
  • 320 g carrots
  • 100 g raisins
  • 350 g rice
  • 1 tsp mustard
  • 20 ml veg oil
  • 150 g chick peas soaked and cooked as per packet instructions
  • 1 tsp chilli

Instructions

  • Soak and cook the chick peas. Or use some previously cooked and stored in the freezer, or use a can
  • Cook the rice.
  • Whilst it is cooking, prepare your vegetables: chop carrots into little dice, cut onions into tiny slivers, as small as your knife will allow.
  • Then mix all the other ingredients together in a salad bowl and toss well.
  • You will find that the addition of the frozen veggies will cool the rice down a lot. If you want the salad to be super cold, rinse your rice in cold water after cooking it, but before adding all the other ingredients.
