Fry the onion, carrot, celery and courgettes in the oil until glossy. Stir in the curry paste and ginger and fry for another minute or two. Stir in the tomatoes and stock, and simmer for 5 minutes until a thick sauce forms.

Tip of the day

Carving meat
Always allow your roast to rest for 5 to 15 minutes before carving so that the juices can be reabsorbed and the meat presents an even surface when sliced. Use a short- or long-bladed knife, and a two-pronged carving fork with a guard. To prevent the meat from losing juice, steady it with the flat of the fork, rather than piercing.
