Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Vegetable Balti With Fragrant Rice

Preheat the oven to 200°C/ 180°C (fan)/ 395°F/ Gas 6

Boil a kettle

Cut the cauliflower[s] into small florets and discard the stalk[s]

Deseed the red pepper[s] (scrape the seeds and pith out with a teaspoon) and cut into large, bite-sized pieces

2 Vegetable Balti With Fragrant Rice

Add the chopped cauliflower and pepper to a baking tray with a drizzle of vegetable oil and a pinch of salt

Put the tray in the oven for 20-25 min or until softened

3 Vegetable Balti With Fragrant Rice

While the vegetables are in the oven, peel and finely slice the brown onion[s]

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a generous drizzle of vegetable oil over a medium heat

Once hot, add the sliced onion with a pinch of salt and cook for 4-5 min or until softened

4 Vegetable Balti With Fragrant Rice

While the onion softens, cut the tomatoes into wedges

Slice the red chilli[es] in half

Dissolve the Knorr vegetable stock cube[s] and tomato paste in 300ml [500ml] boiled water – this is your tomato stock

Once the onion has softened, add the garlic & ginger paste, curry powder and ground fenugreek and cook for 1 min or until fragrant

5 Vegetable Balti With Fragrant Rice

Add the basmati rice, star anise and 300ml [600ml] cold water to a pot with a lid and a pinch of salt and bring to the boil over a high heat

Once boiling, reduce the heat to very low and cook, covered, for 10-12 min or until all the water has been absorbed and the rice is cooked

Once cooked, remove from the heat and keep covered until serving – this is your fragrant basmati rice

6 Vegetable Balti With Fragrant Rice

Add the tomato wedges and halved red chilli (can't handle the heat? Go easy!) to the pan with the tomato stock and green beans and cook for 5-6 min or until the beans have softened and the sauce has thickened

Stir the roasted cauliflower and pepper through the curry – this is your vegetable balti

7 Vegetable Balti With Fragrant Rice

Add the flaked almonds to a baking tray (use the same one you used earlier!) and put the tray in the oven for 2-3 min or until lightly toasted

Tip: Watch these like a hawk so you don't burn them!
