Step 1: Preheat the oven

Step 2: Prepare the ingredients

  • Rinse the basmati rice, drain and set aside.
  • Wash the spinach and peel the ginger.
  • Cut the pepper into thin rings and peel the garlic cloves.

Step 3: Make the green coconut sauce

  • Place the ginger, coriander, the spice club curry, the green pepper, garlic cloves and half of the spinach in a blender.
  • Add the coconut milk and water to the blender.
  • Mix everything into a smooth, bright green sauce.

  • Cut the red onions into thin slices.
  • Heat a large pan (with a lid where possible) over high heat.
