We've trimmed the fat from this sprightly green curry, replacing thighs with breast fillet - it now comes in, wait for it, around 320 calories per person!
Flavour is still paramount, though, and here it comes from the spicing of cloves, cinnamon and masses of spinach and fresh, green coriander in a sauce that's been enriched and thickened with split peas.
With the switch to breast comes a different cooking method - breast doesn't reheat well, so needs to be cooked once only, by you - so this will come as a packet of sliced breast in a yoghurt/garlic/ginger marinade and a pouch of the sauce, ready for a quick toss in the pan. (I think we're talking upmarket simmer sauce here.)
