Cook the rice
Cook the rice

In a medium saucepan, bring the water to the boil. Add the jasmine rice, stir, cover with a lid and reduce the heat to low. Cook for 12 minutes, then remove the pan from the heat and set aside, covered, until the rice is tender and all the water has absorbed, 10-15 minutes. TIP: The rice will finish cooking in its own steam so don't peek!

While the rice is cooking, peel the butternut pumpkin and cut into 2cm chunks. TIP: Keep the peel on if you're in a rush. It becomes tender after roasting and adds fibre to the meal.Thinly slice the brown onion. Cut the zucchini into 1cm chunks. Finely grate the ginger.

In a large frying pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over a medium-high heat. Add the pumpkin, brown onion and zucchini and cook until slightly softened, 5-6 minutes. Add the yellow curry paste (see ingredients list) and ginger and cook until fragrant, 1-2 minutes. SPICY! You may find the curry paste hot! Feel free to add less, depending on your taste.
