Tip 01 Tip 01

Ask your butcher to trim off any excess sinew and fat from the lamb to save you time.

Tip 02 Tip 02

You can switch lamb for beef fillet or chicken– the instructions are the same for both.

Tip 03 Tip 03

For extra flavour, cook your rice in coconut milk – it gives it a lovely creamy texture and taste.
