  • STEP 1

    Put the dried ceps in a bowl and pour in the warm water. Soak for 20 minutes, drain (reserving the stock) and chop. Add water to make it up to 700ml. Heat the olive oil and butter in a pan. Adding one ingredient at a time, frying for a minute between each one, add the cumin seeds, garlic cloves, ginger, green chilli and chopped shallots.

  • STEP 2

    Lower the heat, add the basmati rice and fry until glossy. Tip in the chopped wild mushrooms, add the ceps and fry for a minute. Stir in the stock. Keep on a low heat for 20 minutes, stirring.

  • STEP 3

    Add salt and fold in the yogurt, butter and a drizzle of truffle oil. Sprinkle over chopped coriander.
