MAKE IT SRI LANKAN CASHEW CURRY.
Rich in flavour, this bowl of goodness pairs beautifully with simple brown rice but also tastes fantastic on its own.
INGREDIENTS SERVES 2
2 tbsp coconut oil
15g root ginger, peeled and grated
5 garlic cloves, grated or finely chopped
1 bay leaf
1 shallot, finely diced
8-10 curry leaves (optional)
5cm piece of lemongrass (tender base only), thinly sliced (optional)
3tsp curry powder (Sri Lankan or regular)
250g unsalted cashews, soaked in water for 20 minutes, then drained
400g tin coconut milk
400g tin chickpeas, drained and rinsed
100g sweetcorn kernels (frozen, fresh or tinned)
50g baby spinach
10g fresh coriander, finely chopped
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 Melt the coconut oil in a large saucepan over a medium heat, then add the ginger, garlic, bay leaf, shallot, curry leaves and lemongrass (if using) and saute for 2-3 mins until softened and lightly coloured.
2 Add the curry powder and drained cashews, along with a pinch each of salt and pepper, and cook, stirring, for 2-3 mins. Add the coconut milk, 100ml hot water and chickpeas, bring to a simmer, cover and cook for 20 mins.
3 Add the sweetcorn and spinach, re-cover and cook for a further 2-3 mins to gently cook the greens. Remove from the heat, stir through the coriander and serve.
