Dinner from the solar cooker

Today my solar cooker arrived from ebay. It is a cardboard reflective thing, tonight it is cooking our dinner!

Chicken legs and in the stove in side is rice, carrot and cashews to go under it.

Carrot, cashew nut rice :
Heat oil in saucepan, cook 1 onion until soft.
Add 1 tsp each of  coriander seeds, cumin seeds, mustard seeds, ground coriander turmeric.
Grate and add 250g carrot, mix.
add 250g rice and 500ml water and tsp sea salt.
Bring to boil with lid. Turn off heat and let absorb. 
Fluff with fork, add 100g roasted cashews and parsley.

The legs cooked in 2 1/2 hours which was great but I like my food to look cooked, you know a bit char-grilled, so Pooh kindly made them look the part quickly on the bbq! What a good man.

Yummy dinner, very tender and not too much power needed ;o)
