Step 1 To make the curry sauce, blend the onion, garlic and ginger until nearly smooth. Step 2 In a frying pan, heat the sunflower oil and then add in the spices. Fry for 2-3 minutes or until the spices are fragrant. Add in the puréed vegetables and cook for 5 minutes. Step 3 Add in the tomato purée, a splash of water and the chopped tomatoes. Season well and bring to the boil. Remove from the heat and set aside. Step 4 In a large frying pan, heat 1 tbsp of sunflower oil until hot and then add in the vegetables and cook until golden. Meanwhile, soak the jasmine rice in cold water. Step 5 Add the curry sauce into the frying pan and remove the cinnamon stick. Bring to the boil and then turn down to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes. Step 6 In a saucepan, heat the other tbsp sunflower oil and add in the drained rice. Sizzle for 1 minute and then cover with boiling water to three times the height of the rice. Stir and cover with a lid. Cook for 10-12 minutes or until the liquid has absorbed and the rice is cooked through. Step 7 Serve the rice with the curry on top and coriander sprinkled over.
