In a medium saucepan, bring the water (for the rice) to the boil. Add the basmati rice, stir, cover with a lid and reduce the heat to low. Cook for 10 minutes, then remove the pan from the heat and keep covered until the rice is tender and the water is absorbed, 10 minutes. TIP: The rice will finish cooking in its own steam so don't peek!


While the rice is cooking, thinly slice the carrot (unpeeled) into half-moons. Trim the green beans and cut into 2cm pieces. Finely chop the garlic (or use a garlic press). Pick and roughly chop the mint leaves. Drain and rinse the chickpeas (see ingredients list). Chop the chicken tenderloins into bite-size pieces.


In a large frying pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over a high heat. Add the chicken and cook, tossing, until just browned, 2-3 minutes. Transfer to a bowl. Return the pan to a medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Add the garlic, tandoori paste and tomato paste and cook, stirring, until fragrant, 1 minute. Add the carrot, chickpeas, water (for the curry) and a pinch of chilli flakes (if using) and stir to combine. Simmer until the carrot has softened, 4-5 minutes.


Return the chicken and any resting juices to the pan. Add the light thickened cream, green beans, brown sugar and the salt. Simmer until the veggies are tender and the chicken is cooked through, 4-5 minutes. While the curry is simmering, in a small bowl, combine the chopped mint (save some for garnish!) with the Greek yoghurt and a pinch of salt and pepper.


Add the baby spinach leaves to the curry and stir until wilted, 2 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.


Divide the basmati rice between bowls and top with the chicken and chickpea curry. Top with a dollop of mint yoghurt and garnish with a pinch of chilli flakes (if using) and reserved mint.
