Get your Rice On

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

Stir in the rice, 1/4 tsp salt and the cumin seeds, then 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).

Start the Curry

Meanwhile, heat a drizzle of oil in a large saucepan on medium-high heat.

Once the oil is hot, add the tikka masala paste and tomato puree, cook for 30 secs. 

Stir in the chicken, chicken stock paste, coconut milk, honey (see pantry for amount).

Time to Simmer

Bring to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer until the chicken is cooked and the sauce has thickened, 10-12 mins. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw chicken and its packaging. 

Add the Spinach

Once the chicken is cooked, add the spinach to the pan a handful at a time until wilted and piping hot, 1-2 mins. IMPORTANT: The chicken is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.

Finish Off

Stir in the butter until melted, then season with salt and pepper and remove from the heat. TIP: Add a splash of water if you feel it needs it. 


Share the rice out between your serving bowls and spoon over the curry to finish.
