A delicious one pot dish of briyani rice with plump sultanas, roasted cashews and shallots, tossed through with baby spinach and served with flakey white fish.
1. Heat a large (deep) pan with oil over medium-high heat. Slice onion and capsicum. Grate carrots. Add to pan as you go. Stir through spice and cashew sachets from kit.

2. Stir in rice and pour in 2 cups water. Place fish fillets on top. Cover with lid and simmer over medium heat for 10-15 minutes, or until rice is tender and liquid absorbed (add more water if needed).

3. Dice cucumber and finely chop mint. Toss with 1 tbsp vinegar, 1 tbsp olive oil, salt and pepper (see notes).

4. Remove fish from pan. Stir spinach through rice until wilted.

5. Divide briyani among plates, top with fish and garnish with cucumber salsa. Alternatively, flake the fish and stir through the rice.

NOTES
You can stir natural yoghurt through the cucumber for a creamy raita.
No fish option - white fish fillets are replaced with diced chicken thighs. Add to pan before vegetables. Cook for 2-3 minutes until sealed. Continue as per recipe instructions.
