This super simple Indian spiced curry balances the taste of tangy tomatoes with creamy coconut milk. We add a bit of mango chutney to the curry itself to bring a real sweetness to the dish. 


360g basmati rice, rinsed
400g tinned chickpeas, drained and rinsed
400g tinned chopped tomatoes
400g tin of coconut milk
1 tbsp mango chutney
1 brown onion, diced
1 red chilli, deseeded and diced
2 garlic cloves, crushed
2-inch piece fresh ginger, skin removed and finely diced
fresh coriander, finely chopped, handful
1 lime, juiced
1 tbsp medium curry powder
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp turmeric
1 tbsp olive oil
salt and pepper, to taste


1. Cook the rice according to packet instructions.

2. Meanwhile, heat a drizzle of olive oil on a medium heat in a large pan. Add the onion, chilli, garlic and ginger to the pan and fry for about 10 minutes, until the onion is soft.

3. Add the spices and cook for 30 seconds, until fragrant.

4. Add the chopped tomatoes, coconut milk and chickpeas to the pan, along with some salt and pepper to taste. Simmer for 10 minutes.

5. Stir in the mango chutney, then remove from the heat and add in the lime juice.

6. Serve on top of the cooked rice and sprinkle with the coriander.
