Ingredients 500 g (1 lb 2 oz) basmati or long-grain rice
1½ cups small brown lentils
1½ tsp salt
1 egg yolk
¾ cup thick plain yoghurt
½ cup melted butter
250 g (9 oz) lamb fillet, chopped in small pieces
1 red onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 tsp ground turmeric
2 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground cinnamon
½ tsp ground nutmeg

Cook’s notes

Oven temperatures are for conventional; if using fan-forced (convection), reduce the temperature by 20˚C. | We use Australian tablespoons and cups: 1 teaspoon equals 5 ml; 1 tablespoon equals 20 ml; 1 cup equals 250 ml. | All herbs are fresh (unless specified) and cups are lightly packed. | All vegetables are medium size and peeled, unless specified. | All eggs are 55-60 g, unless specified.

Rinse rice well in cold water 2–3 times. Bring 2 litres (4 pints) salted water to the boil, add rice and parboil the rice – about 5 minutes – and strain.

Cover lentils with cold water, add salt and bring to the boil. Cook for about 20 minutes. The lentils should still be a little al dente. Drain and set aside.

Mix 1½ cups of the rice with the egg yolk, yoghurt and melted butter. Put this in a non-stick, buttered heavy pan, and set aside.

In another pan, melt a little butter and cook lamb, onion and garlic until lamb has browned and onion softened – about 5 minutes. Add spices.

Now mix the remaining parboiled plain rice and the lentils with the lamb mixture and pile it on top of the yoghurt and rice mixture. With a wooden spoon handle, make holes in the rice and add some small pieces of butter. Put the lid on tight and, over a very low heat, cook for about 30–40 minutes.

To serve, turn it upside down on to a warm dish.

The rice should have a beautiful golden crust on top.

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
