  1. Boil a kettle and dissolve the creamed coconut in a jug of 150ml boiling water.
  2. Peel and chop the sweet potato into 1 cm pieces. Chop the red pepper into bite-sized pieces. Peel and finely chop the ginger.
  3. Roughly chop the coriander and drain the chickpeas.
  4. In a medium-sized pan, heat 1 tbsp oil on a medium heat and add the ginger and sweet potato. Fry for 5 mins, then add the red pepper and cook for a further 5 mins.
  5. Then add the curry powder, creamed coconut and chickpeas and simmer for 5-10 mins until the sauce has reduced. Season with sea salt and black pepper.
  6. While the curry is cooking, grate the broccoli into a rice consistency using a grater. Heat a saucepan over a gentle heat with 1 tsp oil, and add the broccoli rice with 2 tbsp water, cook for 3-4 mins, stirring constantly until the broccoli has slightly softened. Mix in half of the juice from the lime. Stir the chopped coriander through the curry.
  7. Spoon the broccoli rice onto a warm plate and top with the Sri Lankan sweet potato, red pepper and chickpea curry. Drizzle over the remaining lime juice, and scatter over the desiccated coconut.
