Ingredients

175g wholegrain basmati rice

15ml curry powder

60ml mayonnaise

100g mushrooms, sliced

½ green pepper, seeded and finely chopped

½ orange or red pepper, seeded and finely chopped

50g currants

Optional extras-

50g roasted and chopped peanuts

425g can red kidney beans, rinsed and drained well

Fresh coriander leaf to garnish

 

Method

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

 2)Add the rice in a steady stream and immediately stir to prevent the rice from sticking to the bottom of the pan. Cook the rice for 25 minutes.

 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.
