To begin, cook the basmati rice. Bring the water to the boil in a pan and add a pinch of salt. Drain the soaked rice, add to the pan and top with a lid. Cook for 8–10 minutes, until tender (if you have not soaked the rice, it will take 10–12 minutes). Drain any excess water and set aside
  • 225g of basmati rice, soaked for 30 minutes in cold water
  • 450ml of water

Heat the coconut oil in a pan. Once the oil is hot, add the mustard seeds, cumin seeds, urad dal, chana dal and asafoetida. Leave to crackle for a few seconds, then add the curry leaves, dried red chillies and sliced shallots. Fry until lightly browned

Bring a large pan of water to the boil with a pinch of salt. Add the vegetables and blanch until just tender. Drain and set aside
