Ingredients

For the rice

  • 300g Thai jasmine rice, washed
  • 50g vegan butter
  • 1 vegetable stock pot
  • 600ml water
  • 1 large block of firm tofu, pressed
  • 1 lemon
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 3 tbsp mild curry powder
  • 3 tbsp red curry paste
  • 1 tsp ground turmeric (mix through half of rice)

For the onions

  • 2 onions
  • 5 garlic cloves
  • The seeds from 2 cardamom pods
  • 1 stick of cinnamon
  • 1 thumb-sized piece of ginger
  • 80g cashews
  • 10g mint
  • 10g coriander
  • 3 spring onions
  • Olive oil
  • Salt

Method

  1. 1.

    Make the rice | Spoon the rice into the saucepan and add the salt and 50g of vegan butter | Cook until the butter melts, constantly stirring | Once the butter has melted, cover the rice with 600ml water and place the lid on top | Add the stock pot, mix well and bring the mixture to the boil over a high heat | Once boiling, turn the heat down to the lowest setting and cook for 12 minutes | After 12 minutes, take the pan off the heat and leave to sit for 10 minutes, with the lid on

  2. 2.

    Flavour the rice | Spoon the rice into a large baking tray (keeping the pan for frying the onion) | Finely slice the lemons and crush the bay leaves into a few pieces | Cut the tofu into bite-sized cubes | Mix all of these through the rice, along with the curry powder and curry paste | Mix well so everything is combined, before adding the turmeric to one side of the rice - mix well so roughly half of the rice is coated in turmeric

  3. 3.

    Time to cook | Place the baking tray in the oven and roast for 25-30 minutes, stirring halfway through

  4. 4.

    Whilst the rice is roasting, fry the onions | Peel and finely slice the onions, finely dice the garlic | Place the saucepan back over a medium heat and add a drizzle of olive oil | Once warm, add the sliced onions and a pinch of salt | Mix well and cook for 5-10 minutes until soft | Once soft, stir through the diced garlic, cardamom seeds, cinnamon stick, grated ginger and cashews | Mix well, reduce the heat a little and cook for 10 more minutes

  5. 5.

    Finish the rice | Finely slice the fresh herbs and spring onions (saving some for the top) | Once the rice is cooked, remove from the oven and mix everything through the rice, along with the fresh chopped herbs

  6. 6.

    Time to Serve | Spoon the rice into serving bowls | Garnish with sliced spring onions and fresh herbs and serve immediately
