• Rinse freekeh. • In a large saucepan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over medium-high heat. Toast freekeh, stirring occasionally, until golden, 1-2 minutes. • Half-fill the saucepan with water, then add a good pinch of salt. Bring to the boil, then simmer, uncovered, until tender, 30-35 minutes. Drain and rinse. • Finely chop garlic. Return the pan to medium heat with a drizzle of olive oil and garlic. Cook until fragrant, 1 minute. Return freekeh to the pan with a pinch of salt and stir to combine.
TIP: The freekeh is cooked when it has softened but still retains some bite.
• Meanwhile, roughly chop cucumber, tomato and salad leaves. Pick and thinly slice herb leaves. In a small bowl, combine herbs and Greek-style yoghurt. Season to taste and set aside. • In a medium bowl, combine Mumbai spice blend and a drizzle of olive oil. Add beef strips, season with salt and toss to coat.
• When the freekeh has 5 minutes cook time remaining, heat a large frying pan over high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. When oil is hot, cook beef strips in batches until browned and cooked through, 1-2 minutes. Transfer to a plate.
TIP: Cooking meat in batches over a high heat helps it stay tender.
• Gently stir cucumber, tomato, baby spinach and a drizzle of white wine vinegar through freekeh. Season to taste. • Divide freekeh salad between bowls. Top with Mumbai beef. • Spoon over mint yoghurt and garnish with roasted peanut & cashew mix to serve.
