Recipe tips
  • You could use chicken or pork for this dish.
  • For a vegetarian version, add a selection of chopped vegetables such as peppers, aubergines and mushrooms in place of lamb. They will only need 5 minutes to cook before adding to the rice.
  • Freezing instructions: Suitable for freezing once cooked. Chill quickly. Defrost in the fridge and reheat thoroughly until piping hot throughout. Eat immediately and discard any leftovers.
