  1. Heat the oil in a medium saucepan over a medium-high heat and fry the onion and carrots for 10 mins or until very soft and lightly golden. Add the garlic, ginger and curry powder, fry for 1 min, then stir in the four until dissolved. Gradually stir in the stock, then simmer over a medium-low heat for 10 mins or until thickened, stirring frequently.
  2. Meanwhile, cook the rice to pack instructions. Set aside.
  3. Remove the sauce from the heat and blitz with a stick blender until very smooth. Season, then simmer over a medium heat for another 5-8 mins to thicken more. Preheat the grill to high.
  4. Cook the fish fingers to pack instructions until crispy and cooked through. Boil the green beans for 4 mins or until tender; drain well.
  5. Fluff up the rice with a fork and divide between 4 shallow bowls. Add the fish fingers and spoon over the curry sauce. Scatter with the coriander to serve.
