Heat the vegetable oil in a large saucepan. Add the chicken, onion, apple and garlic, and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring often. Add the curry paste and cook for a few seconds, stirring.
Add the stock, raisins (or sultanas) and apricots. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer, partially covered, for 35 minutes. Add a little more stock or water, if necessary.
Brown rice takes 30 to 35 minutes to cook, so put it in plenty of simmering water.
Just before serving, blend the cornflour with 2 tbsp cold water and add to the curry, stirring until thickened. Slice in the banana, cooking gently for another few moments. Check the seasoning, adding pepper, if needed.
Serve, topping each portion with 1 tablespoon of yoghurt and accompanied with the rice. Garnish with coriander, if using.
