Chefs tip

Feel free to switch to reduced-fat coconut milk if you preferred and how about using brown or wild rice to contribute to your daily fibre intake? We should all be aiming for 30g of fibre per day.

Brilliant recipe, easy to make and super delicious! Tips: tastes just as good without the stock. Also, 1 tsp of cayenne is a bit much I'd suggest half. And tastes great with added veg
