Indian spiced carrot salad (h)

This colourful salad is the ideal barbecue side and combines grated carrot with sultanas, almonds and toasted sesame seeds.

Put the sultanas in a small bowl and cover with boiling water. Soak for 20 minutes or until nicely plumped.

Meanwhile, toast the cumin seeds and sesame seeds in a dry frying pan for 1-2 minutes until golden. Leave to cool slightly, then put in a serving bowl with the grated carrots. Add the remaining ingredients and toss to combine.

Season well, then cover and leave at room temperature for 30 minutes to allow the flavours to mingle, before serving.
