Coriander Honey Chicken: In a large bowl, combine the soy sauce, garlic, ginger, coriander, turmeric, cayenne pepper and honey. Mix until smooth. Add the chicken to this marinade and stir it in well, making sure all the chicken has a coating. Cover with clingfilm and leave to marinade for 1-2 hours, turning the chicken occasionally. Preheat grill to low/medium heat, and cook the chicken for 12-15 minutes, turn the pieces over, baste with the leftover marinade and cook for another 12-15 minute


Peanut Sauce: Thoroughly combine all the above ingredients in a small bowl until very smooth. Serve with the chicken.


Yellow Sesame Rice: Wash rice well. Leave to soak for 30 minutes in cold water to remove as much starch as possible. Place in a sieve and run cold running water over it until the water runs clear. Drain well. Heat oil in a large pan on medium heat and add cinnamon stick and celery seeds. Stir once and add sesame seeds. Stir again and add raisins, another stir and quickly add the carrot, salt, turmeric and rice. Saute for 1-2 minutes, stirring, then add the water and bring to a boil.
