Cook the Jasmine rice in the microwave with 2 1/2 Cups of boiling water for approx 12 minutes or until tender. Let it cool completely. Combine rice, Chickpeas, Capsicum, Red onion, Almond flakes and Sultanas in a large bowl. Stir gently to combine all of the ingredients.
Whisk together lime juice, honey, olive oil, curry powder, salt and pepper. Pour over rice mixture and combine. Best left in the fridge for a bit for all the flavours to infuse.
