  • 20g flaked almonds
  • 1 tbsp Flora Dairy Free Coconut & Almond
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 1/2 tsp grated fresh ginger
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1/2 tsp mild curry powder
  • 1/2 tsp ground turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 500g diced chicken breast
  • 400ml light coconut milk
  • 1/2 tbsp cornflour
  • 150g fresh baby spinach

To serve: boiled rice and chopped fresh coriander


  1. Add the flaked almonds to a dry pan and cook for a couple of minutes until toasted and then remove and set aside.
  2. Add the Flora Dairy Free Coconut & Almond to the pan and melt over a medium heat. Add the chopped onion and then cook for 3-4 minutes until the onions are soft. Add the garlic and ginger and cook for another minutes.
  3. Next add the spices and stir quickly until all the onions are coated in the spices. Add in the chicken pieces and fry for 3-4 minutes before adding the coconut milk.
