Step 1: Heat a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the coconut oil and the onion. Cook about two minutes until the onion begins to become translucent.

Step 3: Add the water and coconut milk. Stir well and simmer until the carrots are tender. Taste and season with salt, if needed.

Step 4: Cut the kale into thin strips and add to the pan.

Step 5: Stir through then add the sugar, tamari or soy sauce, lime zest and juice. Then cook to wilt the kale (about one minute).

Step 6: Divide the rice between four plates or bowls. Then divide the curry between the bowls and pour over the rice.

Step 7: Sprinkle with basil and enjoy.
