  1. Boil a kettle. Preheat the oven to 220°C/ 200°C (fan)/ 425°F/ Gas Mark 7. Meanwhile, peel and finely slice the onion(s). Place an ice pack or loose ice cubes into a bowl of cold water for step 2.
  2. Add the eggs to a pot of boiling salted water (the salt prevents them from cracking) on a high heat.
  3. Boil for 8 min for perfect mid-boiled eggs. After the 8 min, scoop the eggs out, dunk them into the ice bath and set aside. Re-boil the kettle for.
  4. Add the cherry tomatoes to a baking tray lined with tin foil and fold the edges around the tomatoes to collect the juices. Drizzle them with a 1/2 tbsp (1 tbsp) of olive oil and a pinch of salt.
  5. Add the cashew nuts to the other end and put the tray in the oven for 7 min, until the cashews have coloured slightly, then remove the cashews to cool.
  6. Return the tomatoes to the oven until serving, for approx 25-30 mins. Meanwhile, dissolve the stock cube(s) in 800ml (1.6L) of boiled water. Add the saffron to the stock and stir well until it’s a bright yellow colour.
  7. Heat a large wide-based pan with 2 tbsp (4 tbsp) of vegetable oil over a high heat. Once hot, add the onion and a pinch of salt. Cook the onion for 5 mins, then add the curry powder and cook for a further 2 mins until the onion is softened.
  8. Add the rice and sultanas, and stir until both are evenly coated in oil and spice Add the stock to the rice, a ladle at a time, stirring frequently for 15-20 mins, until all the stock is absorbed and the rice is cooked. The more you stir, the creamier the rice will become. Meanwhile, peel the eggs and slice them in half. Chop the cashew nuts coarsely. Chop the coriander roughly.
  9. Slice the lemon into wedges. Serve the cooked creamy rice in bowls with the eggs, tomatoes, nuts and coriander to garnish. Serve the lemon wedges on the side.
