“This is a simple, light supper dish with great flavour - I found the recipe in a magazine. It goes great with other dishes as an accompaniment, but also works perfectly as a stand-alone dish. The quantities can be varied to suit your taste and you can throw in many additions!”

  1. Bring 9 fl oz of stock to the boil. Add the couscous and simmer for one minute. Remove from heat, cover and leave to stand for four minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a pan, then gently soften the garlic and the red pepper, without allowing them to brown. Add the curry paste and cook for one minute, stirring well.
  3. Now add the remaining stock, the soy sauce, chutney and sultanas. Bring back to the boil, take off the heat and add the lemon juice.
  4. Uncover the couscous, fluff it up with a fork and stir in the spicy mixture, combining well.
  5. Tip into a warm serving dish and garnish with the chopped cucumber, scallions and lemon zest.
  6. Serve at once. (Although it is also really good cold).
