Method:

for the curry….

-Cut the potatoes into cubes, around 1cm x 1cm and boil until just soft.

-At the same time boil a mug full of rice in 2 mugs of water until soft.

*optional- boil some broccoli or other mixed veg to stir into the rice*

-Using a hand blender, blend together the onion, garlic, chilli, ginger, olive oil and curry powder to make a paste.

-Fry this paste on a medium heat in a large non- stick frying pan. Stir to ensure the paste doesn’t catch and burn, do this for 5 minutes.

-Drain the chickpeas and add them to the pan. Add the potatoes and all the other ingredients except the spinach.

-Bring curry to the boil and then simmer until sauce is thick. Add the spinach.

for the chickpea flatbread…

-Sieve the chickpea flour and salt into a bowl.

-Add the water and whisk to ensure any lumps are removed. Add the garlic, coriander and chill and stir.

-Lightly heat and oil a small nonstick frying pan.

-Pour the batter into the pan and fry for 4 minutes on each side (or until golden), flipping with a spatula.
