  1. Blitz the onion, garlic, garam masala, coriander stems and one-third of the coriander leaves with 1 tbsp oil in a food processor to a thick paste.
  2. Heat ½ tbsp oil in a large saucepan over a medium heat and add the paste. Fry for 5 mins, stirring, adding a little water if it sticks. Add the chopped tomatoes and stock; cook for 5 mins. Add the kale and cook for 5 mins. Add the halved tomatoes and cook for 2 mins. Season with pepper.
  3. Meanwhile, cook the rice to pack instructions. Bring a separate pan of water to the boil and cook the broccoli for 3-4 mins until tender. Cut into smaller florets, if you like.
  4. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add the paneer and cook for 7-10 mins, turning to brown on all sides. Stir the paneer, broccoli and remaining coriander into the curry; serve with the rice.
