  1. In a large casserole dish, heat the oil over a high heat. Add the meat-free balls and fry for 5 mins until lightly golden all over, then remove and set aside.
  2. Add the onion and pepper to the pan, adding a little more oil if needed. Cook for 10 mins until starting to soften. Add the garlic, ginger, curry paste and tomato purée. Stir to coat the veg and cook for 1 min. Pour over the tomatoes and top up with 200ml of water.
  3. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat to a simmer and cook for 5 mins. Return the meat-free balls to the pan and cook for a further 5 mins. Scatter with the chopped coriander to finish and serve with rice and a spoonful of coconut cream, if you like.
