1.Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat; cook onion, garlic and carrot, stirring, for 3 minutes. Add spices and seeds; cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Stir in freekeh to coat. Add bay leaf and stock; bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low; cook, covered, for 20 minutes or until most of the liquid is absorbed. Remove from heat; stand, covered, for 10 minutes.
2.Meanwhile, make garlic minted yoghurt: Combine ingredients in a small bowl; season to taste.
3.Using a vegetable peeler, peel cucumbers lengthways into long thin ribbons.
4.Serve freekeh mixture topped with yoghurt, cucumber and combined chilli, coriander and nuts.

For this recipe, you can use 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon instead of the allspice, if you like. Freekeh is roasted green wheat that contains more nutrients than the mature version of the same grain. It has a delicious nutty taste and texture, and is available from major supermarkets and health food stores.
