  • Sunflower oil
  • 2 red onions
  • 2 green peppers
  • 250g kale
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 3 tbsp tikka masala paste
  • 400ml reduced-fat coconut milk
  • 200g spinach
  • ½ bunch chopped coriander
  • Rice
  • Lime wedges



Heat the oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas 7. Heat a splash of sunflower oil in a large deep frying pan. Thinly slice the onions, deseed and chop the peppers, then fry for 10 minutes until softened and starting to colour.

Spread the kale over 1-2 large baking sheets, drizzle over olive oil and the balsamic vinegar, then sprinkle a little sugar over. Roast for 3-4 minutes until crisp and sticky. Season with salt.

Add the tikka masala paste to the pan with the veg in it and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Add coconut milk and spinach, stir and simmer for 3-4 minutes until the spinach has partially wilted. Stir in the coriander, then serve with the crispy kale, rice and, if you like, lime wedges.
