  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • ¼ teaspoon brown mustard seeds
  • ¼ cup (40 g) cashews, roughly chopped
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger

1. Heat the oil in a saucepan, add the mustard seeds and cook, stirring, over medium heat for 30 seconds, or until the seeds start to pop. Add the cashews and cook for 2 minutes, or until golden. Add the onion, ginger, curry leaves, capsicum and carrot. Cook over low heat for 5 minutes, or until the onion is soft.

2. Stir in the turmeric and 2½ cups (625 ml) water. Season. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat to low and slowly stir in the semolina, stirring well to prevent lumps.
