Nutrition: per serving



  • 2 tbsp Oil
  • 1 Onion Finely chopped
  • 3 cloves Garlic Minced
  • 1 tsp Ginger Grated
  • 1 tsp Cumin Seeds
  • 1 tsp Coriander Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp Chilli Powder Adjust to taste
  • 400 g Chickpeas Canned
  • 100 g Spinach Washed and chopped
  • 400 g Canned Tomatoes
  • 1 tsp Salt Adjust to taste
  • 1/2 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1 tsp Garam Masala
  • Coriander For garnish


  • Heat the vegetable oil in a large pot over medium heat.
  • Add the cumin seeds and allow them to sizzle for about 20 seconds until fragrant.
  • Add the chopped onions and sauté until they become golden brown, approximately 5-6 minutes.
  • Mix in the minced garlic and grated ginger. Cook for an extra 1-2 minutes until the raw aroma disappears.
  • Add the ground coriander, turmeric, and chili powder. Stir thoroughly to coat the onions with the spices.
  • Pour in the canned diced tomatoes and cook for 5-6 minutes, enabling the tomatoes to break down and the flavours to meld.
  • Add the drained chickpeas to the pot. Stir to combine them with the tomato and spice mixture.
  • Pour in around 250ml of water. Stir, cover the pot, and allow the mixture to simmer for approximately 10 minutes.
  • Gradually add the chopped spinach to the pot, stirring until it wilts down.
  • Season the curry with salt, black pepper, and garam masala. Adjust the seasoning according to your taste preferences.
  • Simmer the curry for an additional 5-7 minutes, allowing the flavours to develop and the spinach to cook fully.
  • Once the curry is well-combined and the flavours have melded, remove it from the heat.
  • Serve the chickpea and spinach curry over cooked rice or with your favourite bread. Garnish with fresh cilantro.
