1. Boil a kettle. Rinse the red rice and add to a saucepan with 500ml boiling water and a pinch of sea salt. Simmer for 25-30 mins, until cooked.

3. Drain and rinse the tofu and cut into 2cm cubes. Season the tofu with sea salt and black pepper.
4. Heat a medium-sized pan on a medium-high heat with 1 tsp oil and cook the tofu for 10 mins, turning occasionally, until golden brown.
5. Then turn the heat down to medium and add the yellow Thai curry paste, ginger, coriander stalks and the spring onions to the pan and cook for 1 minute. Add the coconut milk, red pepper and choi sum stalks and simmer for 5 mins. Stir through the choi sum leaves and half of the coriander leaves and cook for a further 2 mins. Season the curry with sea salt to taste.
