Nothing beats using your own fresh produce or materials around the house.
If you’re missing a thing or two, tick the items you need to add to your shopping list.

What to do

    1. Place the oil, onion, curry powder and turmeric in a saucepan over medium heat and cook, stirring, for 5 minutes or until the spices are fragrant and onion is translucent.

    2. Add coconut milk and heat to a gentle simmer. Add chicken and return to a simmer. Turn off the heat, cover with a lid and leave for 20 minutes for the chicken to poach.

    3. Meanwhile, to make cauliflower rice, process the cauliflower in a food processor until the size of rice grains. Heat oil in a large frying pan or wok over medium heat. Add cauliflower, coriander stems and garam masala and cook, stirring, for 3-4 minutes.

    4.  Steam the green beans and snow peas for 2 minutes.

    5.  Divide the cauliflower rice among two serving bowls. Top with the chicken curry and garnish with coriander leaves. Serve with the beans and snow peas.
