Fill and boil a kettle of water and get all your ingredients and equipment together. You'll need a small food processor or blender for the paste, a couple of large saucepans, and a frying pan.
Keeping the skins on, chop the potatoes into 1/2 to 1 inch/1 to 2 cm chunks. Put them into a pan, cover with boiling water, add some salt, then bring to a boil and cook until tender - this should take about 5 minutes.
Put your brown rice into another pan with twice its volume of cold water, some salt, and a dollop of coconut oil and put over high heat to boil for 20 to 25 minutes. Keep an eye on the rice while you do your other jobs, making sure it doesn't boil dry.
Next, make the paste. Toast the fennel, coriander, cardamom, and peppercorns in a dry pan for a couple of minutes, then put into a food processor with all the other ground spices and the chile flakes. Coarsely chop the peeled ginger and shallot, discard the tough outer layer of the lemongrass and chop the inner stalk, then add it all to the processor. Cut the stalks off the cilantro and add these with the garlic. Add a couple of tablespoons of coconut oil and blend on high until you have a paste.
Heat a large pan over high heat, then add the peanuts and stir for a minute before adding the paste. Fry for a couple of minutes more, then add the coconut milk, tamarind, honey, and a good pinch of salt. Drain the potatoes, add them to the sauce, and cook for 5 to 10 minutes, until it's a good consistency.
To make a quick pickle, grate the carrots into a bowl and add the zest and juice of a lime, a squeeze of honey, a splash of vinegar, and a pinch of salt. Finely chop the cilantro leaves and add to the bowl, then put to one side.
Use the pan you toasted the spices in to pan-fry the kale over medium heat in a little coconut oil, adding some salt and black pepper, until wilted but starting to crisp.
Once the potatoes have had 5 minutes in the sauce, add the green beans. Cut the tofu into 2/4 inch/2 cm lengths, then cut the pineapple into pieces about the same size, discarding the skin. Add both to the curry and simmer for a few minutes, topping up with hot water if the curry is getting dry.
Once the rice and the curry are ready, ladle the rice into bowls and top generously with the curry. Finish off with a pinch of carrot pickle, some kale and a sprinkling of seeds.
