6Pour in the stock and add the chickpeas and lentils.
7Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 20-30 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender and the lentils are soft.
8Add the pollock chunks to the saucepan, stirring them in gently
9Simmer the curry for a further 5 minutes to cook the fish.
10Stir in the fresh coriander and season, adding salt and pepper, to taste.
11Ladle into warm bowls and serve with hot naan bread or rice.
12Cook’s tip: It’s important that you serve the curry soon after adding the pollock, otherwise the fish will break up into small flakes.
13If you wish to make the curry in advance, add the fish when you re-heat the curry, simmering it for 4 or 5 minutes.
