Chickpea, Spinach & Potato Curry

Edward Hayden's Chickpea, Spinach & Potato Curry

(Serves 4)

I love chickpeas and because they are such a high source of protein, our working and highly active family often incorporate them into the diet in an attempt to keep us all afloat.

Ingredients
2 x (400g) can of chickpeas
1 medium sized red onion-diced
3 cloves of garlic-crushed
1 ½ peppers-cut into dice
4 mushrooms-sliced
2 red chilli-finely chopped
1 inch fresh root ginger (though powdered also works)-chopped
1 teaspoon of ground turmeric
1 tablespoon curry powder
2 potatoes-peeled and cubed
1 large handful of fresh spinach

Seasoning
5floz/150ml vegetable stock
1 x (400g) tinned tomatoes
2 dessertspoons of natural yoghurt

Method
1) In a large wide based saucepan gently heat a little oil
2) Add in the onion, chilli, garlic and ginger and fry gently for 3-5 minutes until nicely fragrant
3) This will produce a highly flavoured aroma in the kitchen. Next add in the diced peppers and mushrooms and cook this for a further 2-3 minutes
4) Drain the chickpeas and rinse them under cold water as sometimes the liquid can be too strong in taste
5) Add the chickpeas to the pan and mix around to completely coat with the vegetable mixture
6) The next ingredients which need to be added is the curry powder and coat the chickpeas with it. Again this will provide a beautiful aroma
7) Next add the chicken stock and tinned tomatoes and reduce the heat to a very low heat, add in the cubed potatoes at this stage
8) Cover the saucepan with a tight fitting lid and simmer, very gently, for 15-20 minutes
9) After the time has elapsed remove the lid, stir gently add in the spinach and natural yoghurt and season accordingly with a little salt and black pepper
10) Finally mix in some chopped fresh coriander and serve immediately with some boiled basmati rice.
