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.

Lovely and really easy. We used frozen french beans and sweet corn as that was all we had in the freezer. Also added a can of chick peas... absolutely lovely. Will be making it every week!

Broccoli and cauliflower don't go well with the curry taste, so if I cook this again I will add only frozen peas to the dish.

Really nice quick dinner. I used fresh veggies rather than frozen and added it a bit later in the meal, also used balti paste. I will definately be cooking again.

Tasty, easy, filling and makes good use of 'left over' vegies

Didn't have any curry paste, so I used curry powder instead. Very delicious and really easy to cook! Will definately be cooking it again, might try different kinds of curry and/or vegetable, just to test the colour and taste.

Agree very simple and cheap dish, glad I tried it. Made it last week and it went down very well with the family. Will certainly be making it again!
