  • Ingredients
    • 1 tbsp coconut oil
    • 1⁄2 onion (finely chopped)
    • salt and pepper
    • 2 tsp garlic–ginger paste
    • 1⁄2 tsp ground turmeric
    • 1 tsp garam masala
    • 2 tomatoes (roughly chopped)
    • 1 x 400g tin of chickpeas
    • 2 handfuls of spinach leaves
    • squeeze of lemon juice
    • handful of coriander leaves
    • coconut yoghurt (to serve – optional)

Melt the coconut oil in a saucepan over a low heat. Chuck in the onion, along with a pinch of salt. Cook for 6 minutes until soft.


Stir in the garlic–ginger paste, turmeric and garam masala. Cook for 1 minute, stirring until it smells fragrant.


Turn up the heat, chuck in the tomatoes and the tin of chickpeas with all of their water. Season with a good pinch of salt and pepper, then leave the curry to bubble away for 5 minutes.


Drop in the spinach leaves. Once wilted, take the pan off the heat and squeeze in the lemon juice to taste. Spoon into a bowl, stir through most of the coriander leaves, then top with the rest. Serve with coconut yoghurt, if you like.
