- 25g cashew nuts
- ½ tsp ground turmeric
- 300g steamed brown basmati rice
- 200g halloumi cheese
- 125g cherry tomatoes
- 5g coriander
- 25g solid coconut cream
- 1 tbsp garam masala
- 32g tomato paste
Before you begin…Get all your ingredients and equipment ready. Skim through these steps. Wash your fruit and veg.
Now, let’s get started! Boil half a kettle. Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a drizzle of vegetable oil over a medium-high heat. Cut the halloumi into bite-sized pieces. Once hot, add the chopped halloumi to the pan and cook for 1 min or until starting to brown.
Meanwhile, heat a separate pan over a medium-low heat. Once hot, add the cashew nuts and cook for 4-5 min or until toasted all over and then set aside for garnish. Watch these like a hawk to make sure they don’t burn!
Once the halloumi is starting to brown, add the garam masala and turmeric and cook for 1 min further or until fragrant.
Meanwhile, chop the cherry tomatoes in half, then add them to the pan and cook for 1-2 min further. Whilst the tomatoes are cooking, remove the coconut cream from the sachet and chop it roughly. Dissolve the chopped coconut cream and tomato paste in 200ml boiled water and season with a pinch of salt – this is your coconut stock.
Increase the heat to high, add the coconut stock to the pan and cook for 2-3 min further or until thickened to a curry-like consistency – this is your halloumi curry.
Whilst the curry is cooking, squeeze the pouch of steamed brown basmati rice to separate the grains. Tear the top corner of the pouch (just a little!) and microwave for 2 min or until piping hot. If you’re cooking two pouches, pop them in together but increase the microwave cook time accordingly. Chop the coriander roughly, including the stalks.
Serve the halloumi curry with the steamed brown basmati rice to the side. Garnish with the toasted cashew nuts and chopped coriander. Enjoy!
