Patak's Lemon Rice

Making curry can be difficult if you don’t know how to combine the spices or where to buy them from. Helpfully, Patak’s has a range of curry pastes and has teamed up with The Global Herald to produce a range of “sizzling summer recipes” that are easy to make and delicious to eat!


  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 tbsp black mustard seeds
  • 3 tbsp Patak’s Biryani Paste
  • 225g basmati rice
  • 600ml water
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • grated rind of 1 lemon
  • 1 tbsp fresh coriander, chopped


  1. Wash the rice in several changes of water and leave to soak in cold water for half an hour.
  2. Heat the oil in a pan and fry the mustard seeds until they pop.
  3. Add the Patak’s Biryani Paste and the drained rice. Stir together for 1 minute then add the water, lemon juice and lemon rind.
