Preheat the oven to 240°C/220°C fan-forced. Cut the cauliflower into small florets. Cut 1/2 the carrot into small chunks. Place the cauliflower and chopped carrot on a lined oven tray. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat, then roast until tender, 15-20 minutes.


While the veggies are roasting, finely chop the garlic. Grate the remaining carrot. Roughly chop the baby spinach leaves. In a medium bowl, combine the mild North Indian spice blend and a drizzle of olive oil. Season with salt, then add the chicken thigh and toss to coat. Set aside.


Heat a large frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add the pumpkin seeds (see ingredients) and toast, tossing, until golden, 2-3 minutes. Transfer to a small bowl.


Return the frying pan to a medium heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Cook the chicken, turning occasionally, until browned and cooked through, 10-14 minutes. TIP: The spice blend will char in the pan – this adds to the flavour!


While the chicken is cooking, melt the butter in a medium saucepan over a medium-high heat. Cook the garlic until fragrant, 1 minute. Add the water, grated carrot, currants (see ingredients) and the chicken-style stock powder and bring to the boil. Add the couscous and a drizzle of olive oil. Stir to combine, cover with a lid and remove from the heat. Set aside until all the water is absorbed, 5 minutes. Fluff up with a fork, then stir through the roasted veggies and baby spinach.


Slice the mild North Indian chicken. Divide the veggie couscous between bowls and top with the chicken and Greek-style yoghurt. Sprinkle over the toasted pumpkin seeds.
