1 Heat the oil in a large saucepan and braise the onions, ginger, garlic and spices until the onions are browned. Add a little water, season with salt and pepper and simmer for 15 minutes.

2 Add the chicken, turn down the heat, cover with a lid and simmer for 10 minutes.

3 Add the rice and lentils and stir through. Add a few knobs of butter and cover with grease proof paper to keep the moisture in the pot. Cover and simmer over very low heat for 5 minutes.  Don’t stir.
