Healthy and Quick Cod Curry

Now I am by no means a healthy eating guru but this is one of my favourite meals, I have no problem using my favourite curry from a jar to achieve it and into the bargain a really quick and healthy meal. My healthy eating advice for what it's worth is, I bought smaller dinner plates! That simple, the logic being that I can eat what I want but I am eating less of it. You'd be surprised the difference it makes, I still eat a full plate of food, my eyes know no difference but my weighing scales certainly do. If you are thinking of making the change, the diameter of my dinner plate now is 23cm, whereas my old plates were 26cms. So loose a couple of centimetres off your plate and you'll loose a couple of inches off your waist!!

Serves 4

200g Long grain rice, uncooked
1 tsp Salt
450-500g Cod, cut into bite sized chunks
150g Green beans, washed, trimmed and halved
454g Jar curry sauce
1 tbsp Fat free natural yogurt (optional)

Cook the rice according to the packet instruction adding the salt to the boiling water. In a medium sized saucepan, gently heat the curry sauce, bring to the boil, add the fish and green beans, return to the boil. Reduce to a gentle simmer for 5-6 minutes or until the fish is opaque and flakes easily. Try not to stir the sauce too much as it will break up the fish. Remove the curry from the heat and if using stir in the yogurt.
Drain the rice, set aside. Fill a ramekin or a small cup with the cooked rice and tip onto a warm plate (this helps with portion control) spoon the curry around the rice and serve immediately.
