2) Now add the carrots and cabbage and cook quickly over the high heat stirring fast. Season.

Once all vegetables are soft add the rice and stir well. Add the cooked pulses, (peas, edamami beans or broadbeans.). If using leeks, add it sooner for it takes longer to cook.

Add a bit more butter towards the end and also to stop it sticking to the bottom. Sprinkle the spring onions and let it cook in the residual heat. Check seasoning.
