    3 While the chicken is cooking whizz the spinach, coriander and ginger together with the coconut milk in a food processor or blender to create a smooth, thick sauce. Add to the pan and simmer for 5-10 minutes until the chicken is completely cooked through and there is no pink meat. Check the seasoning and stir in the lemon juice.

    4 Serve with the yogurt and scatter with extra chopped coriander. Serve with warm naan bread and/or brown basmati rice.
