Instructions

Cook the Rice
1
  • Pour 300ml cold salted water (double for 4p) into a medium pot with a tight-fitting lid.
  • Stir in the rice and bring to the boil.
  • Once boiling, lower the heat to medium, cover, and cook for 10 mins.
  • Remove from the heat and leave aside for 10 mins or until ready to serve (keep covered so the rice can continue to cook in its own steam).
Fry the Chicken
2
  • Halve chilli lengthways. Discard core and seeds. Finely chop.
  • Halve, peel and chop onion into small pieces.
  • Place a large pan over medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil
  • Add chicken and half the onion along with salt and pepper. IMPORTANT: Wash hands and equipment after handling raw chicken and its packaging. Fry until chicken is golden brown, 6-8 mins.

TIP: Notice a stronger smell from your chicken? Don’t worry, this is normal due to vacuum packing used to keep it fresh.

Make the Sauce
3
  • When the chicken has browned, add the chilli (use less if you don't like spice) and North Indian spice mix to the pan and fry for 1 min.
  • Spoon in the peanut butter along with 100ml water (double for 4p).
  • Mix well and cover. Simmer for 4-6 mins. IMPORTANT: Chicken is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.
  • Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the yoghurt.
  • Allow to warm through then taste and season with salt and pepper.
Prep the Veg
4
  • While the sauce simmers, trim half the cucumber (double for 4p) then quarter lengthways. Chop widthways into small pieces.
  • Roughly chop the coriander (stalks and all).
  • Chop the lime into 4 wedges.
  • Cut the tomato into 2cm chunks.
Assemble the Salad
5
  • To a medium bowl add the chopped cucumber, tomato and remaining chopped onion
  • Season to taste with salt, pepper and lime juice then stir together.
Garnish and Serve
6
  • Serve the chicken with the salad and rice alongside.
  • Top with chopped coriander and any remaining lime wedges.
