1 (2.7kg) whole Turkey, skin removed and cut into pieces

300ml rapeseed oil
850g long grain rice, rinsed and drained

Trim any fat off turkey and wash with water. Place the turkey, onion, cinnamon sticks and carrots in a large saucepan; fill with water and boil until the turkey and carrots are done.
Remove bones from turkey. Warm 300ml rapeseed oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Place turkey and carrots in the pan; fry for 2 minutes.
In a bowl, stir together the rice, ground cinnamon, pepper and salt. Pour the rice mixture evenly across the top of the chicken without stirring into the turkey. Bring to the boil. Cover, reduce heat to medium and simmer until rice is tender, 20 to 35 minutes.
