The Method

Put the rice in a pan with 250ml of water. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and cover with a lid. Simmer gently or 25 minutes for perfectly cooked rice.

Meanwhile, peel the onion and cut into thin slices. Peel and finely grate the ginger and garlic. Remove the core from the red pepper and cut into small pieces. Top and tail the courgette and cut into quarters lengthways, then chop.

Heat a non-stick pan over a medium to high heat. Add the oil and sauté the onion for 2-3 minutes until softened and beginning to brown around the edges. Stir in the garlic, ginger and curry paste and cook for another 1-2 minutes, stirring. Season with pepper.

Tip in the red pepper, courgette and butter beans and pour in the coconut milk, stirring to combine. Reduce the heat and simmer for 6-8 minutes until the vegetables are tender and the sauce has nicely thickened.

Ladle the rice into bowls and add the Thai green butter bean curry. Crumble over the cashew nuts and scatter on top with the coriander leaves, if liked to serve.
