  • 300g potatoes, cut into small pieces
  • 2 onions, sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp each ground coriander, turmeric and mild chilli powder
  • 1 tbsp cumin seeds
  • 410g tin chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 2 tbsp tomato purée
  • 200g baby spinach
  • small bunch coriander, leaves chopped
  • wholemeal chapatis, low-fat natural yogurt and mango chutney, to serve


  1. Boil the potatoes in salted water until just tender. While they are cooking, soften the onions and garlic in the oil in a frying pan for a few mins. Add all the spices, then fry for 1 min more. Stir in the chickpeas and tomato purée with 400ml water, then turn the heat up and bubble for a few mins.

  2. When the potatoes are ready, drain and add to the pan. Cook for a few mins until the sauce is thick, stir in the spinach, then season. When the spinach has wilted, scatter with coriander and serve with the chapatis, yogurt and chutney on the side.
