  • 4 tablespoons pumpkin seeds
  • 4 tablespoons sunflower seeds

You can fry the nuts, carrot and courgette at same time but to simplify things and avoid any chance of burning the seeds we have separated it out.

  1. Put 2 mugs of boiling water in a pan, add the pilau rice seasoning and the rice.  Stir once and bring back to the boil.  Turn down to gently simmer, with a lid on, for 10 minutes.  The water should be absorbed and the rice cooked. Once cooked, remove from the heat and leave with a lid on.
  2. In a bowl, mix the chicken, oil and ginger. Cover and set aside until later.
  3. Meanwhile, heat a little oil in a frying pan and fry the following in batches until they begin to brown. Once fried, transfer into a large bowl
  4. The seeds.
  5. The carrots and the courgettes.
