1. Combine curry paste and yoghurt in a large bowl. Add chicken and stir until well coated. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes, or overnight, to marinate.

2. Heat a large deep non-stick frying pan over medium-low heat. Add chicken and cook for 5 minutes or until lightly browned. Add any excess marinade and stir to coat.

3. Add stock to pan and stir well. Reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer for 8 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.

4. Stir in coconut cream. Remove lid and simmer, for 10 minutes or until sauce reduces slightly. Remove from heat and stir in spinach to wilt.

5. Meanwhile, cook cauliflower in a steamer set over a saucepan of simmering water until tender. Using a handheld blender, blend cauliflower to a coarse puree. Season with freshly ground black pepper.

6. Divide cauliflower mash and chicken curry between plates. Top with coriander to serve.
