For the marinade

2.5cm/1in piece fresh ginger, peeled

1 tbsp garlic infused oil

¼ tsp salt

1 lime, juice only

½ tsp ground coriander

½ tsp chili powder

½ tsp ground turmeric

½ tsp ground cumin

2 chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces

75ml/2½fl oz lactose free cream

For the curry

1 tbsp sunflower oil

2 tomatoes, seeds removed, flesh finely chopped

1 tbsp tomato purée

splash water

75ml/2½fl oz lactose free double cream

150g/5oz baby spinach leaves

To serve

small handful fresh coriander leaves, chopped

100g/3½oz basmati rice, rinsed and drained, then cooked according to packet



For the marinade, finely chop the ginger. Sprinkle rover the salt and chop a little more, then place into a bowl. Add the lime juice, ground coriander, chilli powder, ground turmeric, garlic oil and ground cumin to the bowl and mix well.

Add the chicken pieces and the lactose free cream and stir to coat the chicken. Leave to marinate for at least 10-15 minutes (or for an hour if possible, covered in the fridge).

For the curry, heat the oil in a frying pan over a low heat and add the tomatoes and the tomato purée and cook gently for about one minute. Add the chicken to the pan along with the marinade and a splash of water.

Pour in the lactose free cream, turn up the heat and simmer for 10-15 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through. There should be no pink when you cut into it. If pink, cook for longer.

Add the spinach to the pan and stir until just wilted. Sprinkle over the coriander. To serve, drain the rice and divide between two plates. Top with the curry.
