(I personally like to cook this dish in a large wok).
Firstly, add the coconut oil and butter into the wok and melt on a low heat.
Whilst this is melting I tend to throw in the diced onions too.


I slightly cheat my using a bag of mixed veg (this has peas, sweetcorn, brocolli and carrot in).
Once the butter has melted I then add in the mixed veg as well as the green beans, cauliflower, cabbage, chickpeas and some more peas.
Make sure you regularly stir and increase the heat to medium.


Add in half of coconut milk as well as the freshly chopped peppers.


Now it’s time to get some flavour in there. Add the salt, pepper, paprika, turmeric, cayenne, cinnamon, curry powder and a clove of garlic.


Make sure you thoroughly mix the spices in. Once this has been done leave it all simmering for around 5 minutes, still on a medium heat or possibly medium-low (depending on your cooker).


Check the vegetable to see if they look cooked or virtually finished. If they don’t, then leave simmering for a little longer. If they do look ok then firstly add in the rest of the coconut milk and stir.


The sauce of the curry should be bubbling away, whilst this is happening add in the bolognaise sauce slowly, whilst mixing it in at the same time. Once this is all in add 150g of the double cream and spinach.


Leave to simmer again for another couple minutes to allow the sauce to thicken slightly. Then add the remaining cream and leave again for a minute or two.


Your curry should be complete now. I personally like to serve mine with basmati rice and maybe a poppadom... or two!
