    For the Rest of the Curry:

    • 3 tbsp oil
    • 1 red onion sliced
    • 200 g 1 pack mangetout
    • 4 baby peppers or one large, finely sliced
    • 4-5 curry leaves
    • ½ savoy cabbage leaves washed and finely sliced
    • 1 stalk lemongrass chopped
    • 3 cloves garlic chopped
    • 2 carrots peeled into thin strips
    • 1 tsp ground turmeric
    • ½ tsp ground cumin
    • 1 tsp garam masala
    • 2 tsp hot paprika

    Instructions
     

    • Preheat the oven to gas 7/220C/425F.
    • Keep the tomatoes whole and drizzle the oil over them. Toss them in the oil and the salt and then put then on a baking tray in the top of the oven for about 15 minutes, or until starting to char.
    • While they are cooking, make the rest of the curry. Heat the oil in a large pan or wok. Fry the onion, mangetout and peppers, on a medium heat, for about 5, until they have started to brown. Add the curry leaves and stir those in.
    • Now put in the sliced cabbage and mix through. Cook for a minute or two, add the lemongrass and garlic and give it another couple of minutes. Now put a lid on the pan and cook the curry in its own steam for 5 minutes, or until the cabbage is cooked through.
    • Take off the lid and put in the carrot strips, now add the spices and the salt and stir through. Allow to cook for a couple more minutes, until the carrot has softened, but isn’t overcooked.
    • In a separate frying pan, dry-fry the almonds for about 2 minutes, stirring them frequently, to allow them to toast and the flavour to come through.
    • Serve the cooked curry in a large serving bowl. Pour in the roast tomatoes, then add the almonds and the chopped parsley. Finally, top with the pomegranate seeds. Mix in and serve immediately with rice.
