Written on Friday, October 21, 2016 | 6:24:00 PM




SERVES: 4 as a side
PREPARATION: 10 minutes
COOKING: 20 minutes

Ingredients : 
- 200 g (7 oz/1 cup) basmati rice
- 1 pinch fine sea salt
- 3 tablespoons olive oil 
- 1 teaspoon mustard seeds
- 100 g (3½ oz) raw cashew nuts
- 1 onion, thinly sliced
- 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
- 1 red chilli, seeded and finely chopped, plus extra to serve (optional)
- 60 g (2¼ oz) trimmed silverbeet (Swiss or rainbow chard), shredded
- finely grated zest of 1 lemon
- sea salt flakes
- freshly ground black pepper

Preparation Method :
1) Lightly toast the rice in a dry lidded pan until aromatic. Stir in the salt, 1 tablespoon of the olive oil and 500 ml (17 fl oz/2 cups) water. Bring to the boil, cover and reduce the heat to low. Very gently cook for 15 minutes, then remove from the heat and set aside for 5 minutes with the lid on.

2) Meanwhile, heat the remaining oil in a frying pan and fry the mustard seeds for 30 seconds. Add the cashew nuts and stir-fry for 30 seconds more. Add the onion and cook over a medium heat, stirring constantly, until golden and caramelised, about 10 minutes. Add the garlic and chilli and cook for 3 minutes more. Finally, add the silverbeet and cook until wilted.

3) Fluff the rice with a fork and tip into a shallow serving dish. Gently fork through the onion, silverbeet and most of the lemon zest. Taste for seasoning and add more salt and pepper if needed. Sprinkle with the remaining lemon zest and chilli (if using). Serve hot.
