If you don't have a a food processor, finely chop the garlic, ginger and coriander and mix with the remaining paste ingredients.

Spray a large saucepan with cooking spray over a low-medium heat. cook the onions for 5-10 minutes until translucent. Add the curry paste and cook for a few minutes. Add the lentils to the pan and stir through the paste.

Pour in the stock and tinned tomatoes; increase the heat and bring to the boil, then reduce to a simmer and cook for 5 minutes before adding the chicken. Cook for 10 minutes or until the lentils and chicken are cooked through. Stir through the spinach and coconut milk.

Serve in topped topped with a dollop of fat free natural yogurt and some chopped coriander.
