Cook the Rice

Pour the water for the rice (see pantry for amount) into a medium saucepan with a tight-fitting lid.

Stir in the rice and 1/4 tsp salt and bring to the boil. Once boiling, turn the heat down to medium and cover with the lid.

Leave to cook for 10 mins, then remove the pan from the heat (still covered) and leave to the side for another 10 mins or until ready to serve (the rice will continue to cook in its own steam).

Get Prepped

Meanwhile, halve, peel and chop the onion into small pieces. Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).

Halve the bell pepper and discard the core and seeds. Cut into 1cm chunks.

Cut the Tenderstem® broccoli into thirds.

Trim the courgette, then quarter lengthways. Chop widthways into 1cm pieces.

Start your Curry

Heat a drizzle of oil in a large frying pan on medium heat.

Once hot, add the onion, courgette and pepper chunks and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, 4-5 mins. 

Stir in the garlic, tikka masala paste and tomato puree. Cook for 1 min more.

Pour the creme fraiche, veg stock paste and water for the curry (see pantry for amount) into the pan. Bring to the boil, stirring to combine, then reduce the heat to medium.

Simmer and Stir

Next, stir in the diced chicken and broccoli, then cover with a lid (or foil) and simmer until the veg is almost tender, 8-9 mins. 

Remove the lid, then allow the curry to simmer until thickened, stirring occasionally, 3-4 mins. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw chicken and its packaging. It's cooked when no longer pink in the middle.

Finish Up

Once the curry has thickened and the veg has softened, remove from the heat.

Taste and season with salt and pepper if needed. Add a splash of water if it's a little too thick.


Fluff up the rice with a fork and share between your bowls.

Spoon over your chicken tikka masala and sprinkle over the chilli flakes if you'd like (add less if you'd prefer things milder).
