175g wholegrain basmati rice
15ml curry powder
100g mushrooms, sliced
½ green pepper, seeded and finely chopped
½ orange or red pepper, seeded and finely chopped

Fresh coriander leaf to garnish
1) Bring a medium saucepan of water to the boil and generously season with salt (approx. 2 teaspoons).

3) When the rice is cooked drain it into a colander and immediately rinse with lots of cold tap water. Allow to drain for a couple of minutes and then transfer into a large bowl.
4) Add the mayonnaise and the curry powder to the rice and stir well to combine thoroughly.
5) Add all the remaining ingredients and stir well. Refrigerate until required and serve with a sprinkle of fresh coriander.
