Halve, peel and finely chop the shallot. Halve the pepper and discard the core and seeds. Chop into small pieces. Trim the courgette then quarter lengthways. Chop widthways into small pieces. Trim the carrot (no need to peel) then coarsely grate.
Heat a splash of oil in a large saucepan on medium heat. Add the shallot, pepper and courgette and cook, stirring, until softened, 3-4 mins. Stir in the rice, stock powder and turmeric.
Pour the water (see ingredients for amount) into the pan and bring to the boil. Once boiling, lower the heat to medium and pop a lid on the pan. Leave to cook for 10 mins, then remove the pan from the heat. Remove the lid and quickly add the carrot (don't stir) then replace the lid and leave to the side for another 10 mins or until ready to serve . TIP: The rice will finish cooking in its own steam.
Meanwhile, preheat your grill to high and line a baking tray with foil. Zest the lemon then chop into wedges. Halve the chilli lengthways, deseed and finely chop.

Fluff up the rice with a fork and season to taste with salt, pepper and a squeeze of lemon juice. Stir through the flaked almonds. Serve on plates topped with the grilled coley, a dollop of yoghurt and a sprinkling of chilli for those who want some kick. Serve any remaining lemon wedges on the side for squeezing over. Enjoy!
