Ingredients

  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 red onion , finely sliced
  • 115g paneer , cut into 2-3cm, cubes
  • 2 tbsp medium curry powder
  • 250g frozen spinach
  • 200g cooked coconut rice pouch
  • ½ red chilli , finely sliced (optional)

Method

  • STEP 1

    Bring a medium pan of water to the boil. Add the eggs and cook for 7 mins, then put them in a bowl of cold water and set aside.

  • STEP 2

    Meanwhile, drizzle the oil in a large non-stick frying pan or shallow casserole dish. Add the onion and fry over a medium-high heat for 5 mins. Tip in the paneer and fry for 5 mins or until evenly browned and the onion is beginning to caramelise.

  • STEP 3

    Add the curry powder and fry for 1 min, then add the spinach. Cover with a lid and cook for a few mins to allow the spinach to defrost. Uncover, add the rice, turn up the heat and cook for a few mins more or until everything is piping hot. Season. Peel the eggs, halve and place on top of the rice. Finish with a scattering of chilli, if you like.
