  1. Step 1

    Cook the rice following pack instructions, about 25 mins. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat and fry the ginger and garlic for a couple of minutes until fragrant. Add the spices and stir briefly, then pour in the stock and a quarter of the chickpeas, along with all the reserved liquid from the cans. Cover and cook for 5 mins, then blitz using a hand blender until smooth.
  2. Step 2

    Stir in the chilli, remaining chickpeas, the broccoli and green beans, then cover and cook over a low heat for 7-8 mins until the veg is just tender. Stir in the yogurt and coriander. Serve half straightaway with half the rice, then cool the leftovers completely and keep chilled for another day. Will keep chilled for up to three days. Reheat with the rice in heatproof bowls in the microwave until piping hot.
