Goat and broad bean pilaf with seasoned yoghurt - Recipe

Prep: 30 minutes

Cooking: 1 Hour 30 Minutes

Serves: 4

Pilaf is a delicious and aromatic Middle Eastern dish made of rice cooked in a rich broth of onions and spices. It works brilliantly with the richness of goat meat. It is in the same family as an Indian pilau or biryani.

Recipe by: Tom Hunt (recipe from The Natural Cook, Quadrille, £20)


Olive oil
200g goat leg or shoulder, diced
150g wholegrain basmati
2 onions, sliced
450ml water
1 tablespoon ground coriander
1 clove garlic, roughly chopped
500g broad beans podded
Small piece of cinnamon bark
Yoghurt to serve
1/2 lemon cut into wedges
3 mint leaves


  1. Preheat the oven to 160C
  2. Sear the diced goat meat in a hot pan with olive oil and salt for 10 minutes or until browned on all sides.
  3. Meanwhile in an ovenproof dish, gently fry the sliced onions in olive oil for 15-20 minutes until they are soft and caramelized. Then add the coriander, garlic, broad beans and cinnamon and fry for a further 2 minutes. Finally add the rice and stir, coating each and every grain with oil, onion and spice.
  4. Add the goat meat and water to the rice, bring to the boil, then reduce the heat. Taste and adjust the seasoning as required. Put the lid on and put in the oven for 45 minutes until the water has evaporated.
  5. Serve with yoghurt, torn mint leaves and lemon wedges

Top Tips:

Pilaf will keep really well for 4 days. It’s delicious cold the next day or reheated. Make sure its properly refrigerated and piping hot right through when reheated.
