  1. Step 1

    To make the spice paste, cook the cumin seeds in a small frying pan over medium heat, tossing, for 1 min or until aromatic. Transfer to a small bowl. Add the onion, garlic, chilli and turmeric to the bowl. Wipe the pan clean. Add the coconut to the pan over medium heat and cook, stirring constantly, for 3-4 mins or until just golden. Add the coconut to the cumin mixture and stir to combine. Transfer to a food processor and process until a smooth paste forms.
  2. Step 2

    Cook the broccolini in a saucepan of boiling water for 2 mins or until just tender. Refresh under cold water. Drain well and pat dry with paper towel.
  3. Step 3

    Heat the oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the spice paste and cook, stirring, for 4-5 mins or until aromatic. Add the cashews, coconut milk, broccolini and 200ml water to the pan. Cover and cook for 5 mins or until the mixture thickens and is heated through. Season. Sprinkle with chilli and extra cashews to serve.
