Servings 6 servings

- 250 g Halloumi cubed
- 1 400g tin Coconut Milk
- 115 g Cashews
- 500 g Passata
- 60 g Greek Yoghurt
- 1 Onion diced
- 3 cloves Garlic crushed
- 1 thumb-sized piece Ginger grated

Melt half the butter in a skillet and fry the halloumi until it is browned on all sides. Do this in batches if needed. Place on a paper towel covered plate to drain.
Blend the cashew nuts with the coconut milk in a food processor until smooth. Add the passata and the yoghurt and blend again. If the mixture seems too thick then add a little water.
Melt the rest of the butter in a big pot and add the onion, garlic and ginger. Cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add all the spices and the curry paste and cook until fragrant, a minute or so. Pour in the cashew nut mixture and bring to the boil then stir through the spinach. Add the halloumi to the sauce and serve with rice and coriander.
