Method

  1. Heat the oil in a frying pan, then fry the onion for 5-6 mins until softened. Add the chicken pieces, fry for a further couple of mins just to colour the outside, then stir in curry paste and rice. Cook for another min.

  2. Pour in the chicken stock and throw in any larger bits of frozen veg. Bring to the boil, lower the heat, then cover the pan with a lid. Cook for 10 mins, then stir in the remaining veg. Scatter over the spinach, cover, then cook for 10 mins more until all the stock is absorbed and the rice is tender. Give everything a good stir, season to taste, then tuck in.

Very easy to prepare plus its very versatile and uses up all the veg in the fridge!!It's now a firm favourite plus the washing up doesnt pile..it tastes even better with long grain rise as it gives it a richer flavor.Excellent!

I followed the recipe but used Balti paste, and used two heaped tablespoons. Had to add a small amount of water half way through as it seemed a bit dry. Will definitely make this again absolutely delicious.

Two sons loved this and had at least two helpings each but I was a little disappointed, found it a bit tasteless. Added fresh cauliflower, French beans, peas, carrots and spinach and used a Korma paste but then added Madras powder as it seemed a bit bland. Took ages to get the rice cooked but luckily the veg still had bite which was nice. I added the juice of a lemon at the end which def perked it up. I would make it again.

thanks for the lemon juice tip - it really helped perk it up at the end. I also added dried coriander with the stock as I didn't have any fresh.

Now a firm family favourite, yummy! I add frozen peas, sweet corn, French beans and asparagus for the last 5 minutes of cooking.
