Inspired by a traditional Israeli dish, this spiced chicken and carrot rice, served with a lively mint relish, is light and vivacious.


  • 250 g/9 oz chicken, diced
  • 3 garlic cloves, chopped


  1. To make the relish, put all the ingredients in a bowl and mix together. Chill until ready to serve.
  2. Mix the diced chicken with half the garlic and the turmeric. Heat a little of the oil in a pan, add the chicken and fry briefly until the chicken has changed colour and is almost cooked. Remove from the pan and set aside.
