1

Preheat your oven to 200°C. Pop the diced squash onto a baking tray and sprinkle over half of the ground cumin, add a drizzle of oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat the squash well, then arrange in a single layer. Pop on the top shelf of the oven and cook for 25-30 mins, until tender and golden. Turn halfway through cooking.

Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil with a pinch of salt, for the rice. When boiling, stir in the brown rice and half the stock powder. Bring to the boil again and cook for 25 mins. TIP: Add more water if it starts to evaporate too much. When cooked, drain the rice thoroughly in a sieve and return to the saucepan, off the heat. Cover with a lid to keep warm.

While the rice cooks, halve, peel and chop the onion into small pieces. Peel and grate the ginger. Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press). Roughly chop the coriander (stalks and all). Halve the chilli lengthways, deseed then finely chop. Drain and rinse the chickpeas in a sieve.

Stir in the ginger, garlic, ground turmeric, North Indian style curry powder, remaining cumin and as much chilli as you dare. Cook for 1 minute. Stir in the chickpeas to coat in the mixture, then add the coconut milk, water (see ingredients for amount) and remaining stock powder to the pan.
