Beef, Coconut and Spinach Pilau

Heat half the oil in a 1.7L (3pint) ovenproof casserole dish and brown the beef in batches for 3-4 minutes.  Remove from the pan and set aside.
Add the remaining oil and cook the onions and garlic until lightly brown.  Stir in the curry paste and cook for 2-3 minutes.
Return the beef to the dish and add the chilli, coconut milk and stock.  Season. Bring to the boil, reduce the heat, cover and cook in the oven or on the hob for 1 hour. 
Stir in the rice, cover and return to the oven or hob for a further 20 minutes until all the liquid has been absorbed.  Add the spinach and tomatoes. Leave to stand covered for 5-10 minutes, garnish with the freshly chopped coriander and flaked almonds and serve immediately.
Choose the strength of curry sauce that suits your family best.
