HEAT 1 tbsp oil in an ovenproof casserole or pan and fry the finely chopped onions, garlic and ginger over a medium heat for 2-3 mins. Add the spices and cook for 1 min. Add the chicken and cook for 2-3 mins, then pour in the coconut milk and ground almonds and simmer gently for 20 mins. Meanwhile, heat the remaining oil in a non-stick frying pan and fry the onion rings for 5-10 minutes until browned, turning them frequently. Drain on kitchen paper. When the curry is nearly ready, fry the grated cauliflowe­r gently in the oil remaining from the fried onions for 5 mins, then pile it onto two plates, top with the chicken curry, sprinkle with coriander and scatter the fried onions on top. Serve the korma with 100g fine green beans on the side.
