Preheat the oven to 220°C/200°C fan-forced. In a medium saucepan, add the water and bring to the boil. Add the basmati rice, stir, cover with a lid and reduce the heat to low. Cook for 10 minutes, then remove the pan from the heat and keep covered until the rice is tender and the water is absorbed, 10 minutes. TIP: The rice will finish cooking in its own steam so don't peek!


While the rice is cooking, cut the carrot (unpeeled) into 1cm chunks. Place the peeled & chopped pumpkin, carrot and a drizzle of olive oil on an oven tray lined with baking paper. Season with salt and pepper and toss to coat. Roast until tender, 20-25 minutes. TIP: Cut the carrot to size so it cooks in time.


While the veggies are roasting, cut the broccoli into small florets and roughly chop the stalk. Finely chop the garlic. Remove the stem from makrut lime leaves, then very finely chop. Roughly chop the Asian greens. TIP: Makrut lime leaves have a fibrous texture, so you want to cut them very thinly!


SPICY! The curry paste is spicy, use less if you're sensitive to heat. In a large frying pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over a medium-high heat. Cook the broccoli until just softened, 5-6 minutes. Add the garlic, makrut lime and Thai red curry paste (see ingredients) and cook until fragrant, 1 minute. Add the coconut milk and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat to medium and simmer until the broccoli is tender, 4-5 minutes. Stir through the Asian greens until wilted.


Stir the soy sauce, brown sugar and roasted veggies through the curry until combined.


Divide the basmati rice between bowls and top with the Thai red pumpkin and broccoli curry. Sprinkle with the roasted cashews.
