Lidded saucepan
Medium Bowl
Large Frying Pan



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

Stir in the rice and 0.25 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).


Meanwhile, peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).

Pop the diced chicken into a medium bowl.

Sprinkle over the flour and salt (see pantry for both amounts). Toss together so the chicken is nicely coated. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw chicken and its packaging.


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

Once hot, fry the chicken until golden brown on the outside and cooked through, 8-10 mins. IMPORTANT: The chicken is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.

Meanwhile, clean out the cornflour bowl. Once the chicken is cooked, transfer it to the (now clean) bowl and set aside for later.


Wipe out the (now empty) pan and pop back onto medium heat with a drizzle of oil. 

Add the garlic, korma curry paste and curry powder. Fry for 30 secs.

Next, stir in the vegetable stock paste, mango chutney and water for the sauce (see pantry for amount). Bring to the boil, then lower the heat. 


Add the chicken back into the pan and simmer until the liquid has reduced slightly, 2-3 mins. 

Stir in the creme fraiche and butter (see pantry for amount).

Add the spinach to the pan a handful at a time until wilted and piping hot, 1-2 mins. Season with salt and pepper and remove from the heat.

Add a splash more water if you feel it needs it. 


Share the rice out between your serving bowls.

Spoon over the curry. Sprinkle on the crispy onions to finish. 



Step 2 MOD: If you’ve chosen chicken instead, prep it in the same way. IMPORTANT: Wash hands and utensils after handling raw meat. 

Step 3 MOD: Heat the pan on medium-high heat instead. Fry the chicken for the same amount of time until golden brown and cooked through, 8-10 mins, then continue as instructed. IMPORTANT: Cook so there's no pink in the middle.
