Rinse rice until water runs clear. Place rice and 2 ½ cups water in a saucepan, bring to boil, reduce heat and simmer for 25 minutes. Remove from heat, covered. Let stand for 10-15 minutes, then fluff rice with a fork before serving.

While rice is cooking, combine red curry paste, peanut butter, soy sauce, brown sugar and mix well. Set aside.

Heat a heavy-based pan to medium-high heat and spray with oil. Add chicken and cook, stirring, for 5 minutes. Add curry paste mixture and stir to combine. Add coconut milk and bring to a simmer.

Add courgettes and beans and cook, stirring, for 5-10 minutes, until liquid is reduced and chicken is cooked through. Add spinach leaves and peas and cook another minute.

Serve curry with rice, topped with coriander leaves.
