1 Put the frozen peas into a bowl of boiling water to thaw. Meanwhile, peel and finely chop the garlic and ginger. Finely slice the chilli, removing the seeds if you don’t like it too spicy. Finely slice the spring onions. Cut the cauliflower/broccoli florets off the stalk and chop them into small bite-size pieces. Deseed and finely chop the red capsicum.
2 Put the oil into a large non-stick pan set over a high heat. Once the pan is hot, add the prepared garlic, ginger, chilli and spring onions and cook, stirring regularly, for 1½ min.
3 Next, add the cauliflower or broccoli, red pepper and cumin seeds and cook, stirring regularly, for 2 min. Drain the peas and add these with the remaining ingredients, apart from the garnishes (if using), along with freshly ground black pepper. Bring to the boil, then reduce to a simmer for 2 min.
4 Remove from the heat. Sprinkle over the coriander, flaked almonds and chilli flakes, if using.
