Chick Pea & Spinach Masala

Curry feat

Forget takeaways, this Chick Pea & Spinach Masala is super tasty while being really easy to make. Having friends over? You can make it even easier by cooking the sauce in advance then heating up on the day adding chick peas and spinach – perfect!

I cook this for my 4 year old so I use mild chilli powder, increase the quantity if you can take a bit of heat – fresh chills can also be added at the sauté stage.
