Instructions

1

• Finely chop garlic. • In a medium saucepan, melt the butter with a dash of olive oil over medium heat. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, 1-2 minutes. Add basmati rice and the water. Stir and bring to the boil. • Reduce heat to low and cover with a lid. Cook for 10 minutes, then remove from the heat and keep covered until the rice is tender and the water has absorbed, 10 minutes.

TIP: The rice will finish cooking in its own steam, so don't peek!

• Chop broccoli into small florets and roughly chop the stalk. • Thinly slice carrot into rounds. • In a small bowl, combine soy sauce mix and sweet chilli sauce.

• Heat a large frying pan with a drizzle of olive oil over medium-high heat. Add broccoli and carrot with a good splash of water and cook, tossing, until tender, 5-7 minutes. • Add gingerlemongrass paste and cook, tossing, until fragrant, 1 minute. Transfer to a medium bowl.

• SPICY! If you're sensitive to spice, feel free to use less peppercorns. While the veggies are cooking, lightly crush the black peppercorns (see ingredients) using a pestle and mortar or in their sachet using a rolling pin. • In a second medium bowl, combine the crushed peppercorns, a pinch of salt, Southeast Asian spice blend and cornflour. • Cut chicken thigh into 2cm chunks. Add chicken to the spiced cornflour and toss to coat.

• Return frying pan to medium-high heat with a generous drizzle of olive oil. When oil is hot, pick up the chicken using tongs and shake any excess flour back into the bowl. • Cook chicken, tossing occasionally, until browned and cooked through (when no longer pink inside), 6-7 minutes. • Return veggies to the pan, add soy sauce mixture and cook until bubbling, 1 minute.

TIP: Add a drizzle more oil if needed. Cook in batches for the best results!
