Ingredients Jump to method

Fruit & Veg

4 garlic cloves

1 yellow onion

4 oz spinach

1 bunch fresh cilantro


Dried Goods

10 oz basmati rice


Cans & Jars

2 x 15 oz can chick peas

1 x 14.5 oz can light coconut milk

1 x 13.5 fl oz can diced tomatoes


Condiments

1 tsp garam masala

2 tbsp korma curry paste


Pantry

Salt & pepper

Olive oil

Method

Pour the rice into a pan and cover with 600ml boiling water. Season with salt, stir, and place the lid onto the pan. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Next, remove the pan from the heat, ensuring the lid is kept on for a further 10 minutes, as the rice will continue to cook in its own steam.


Meanwhile, peel and finely dice an onion into small chunks, then a large frying pan on medium heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Crush in the garlic, add 2 tbsp of korma curry paste, and stir everything together. Cook for 5 minutes, occasionally stirring.


Drain the chick peas and add to the frying pan. Stir and season with salt, pepper, and 1 tsp garam masala. Leave to cook for a couple of minutes before adding the can of diced tomatoes. Stir and bring to a simmer for 5 minutes.


Next, roughly chop the majority of the cilantro leaves,  add to the pan with the light coconut milk. Cook for a further 5 minutes till slightly thickened. Add your spinach and continue to cook until wilted.


Serve the rice and curry between four bowls and garnish with the remaining cilantro leaves.
