25g coconut oil 
1 tsp chilli flakes
1tsp cumin
2 tsp turmeric ground

1 litre coconut water  
1 vegetable stock cube 
2 tsp tamarind paste 
200g bok choy

  2. Add the chilli flakes, cumin, coriander, ginger, and turmeric to the pan and fry for a few minutes to toast the spices so they release their flavours into the onions.

  4. Then add the roasted vegetables and bring back to the boil.
  5. Lastly, chop the bok choy and add the white stalks to the curry to cook for 3 minutes then add the green leaves and allow to wilt in the curry.
