admittedly, i don't enjoy cooking nor am i particularly good at it. i have a few recipes that i think i do well, signature dishes we may call them. and wednesday night i made a chickpea and spinach curry that i dare say is pretty tasty so i thought i'd share it with you!
small onion chopped
2 cloves garlic (i use the cheater version in the jar)
1 tsp fresh ginger
2 tbs curry paste (i used red)
14 oz can of diced tomatoes
1 c water
14 oz can of chickpeas
1 lb of fresh baby spinach leaves, chopped
a handful of fresh cilantro
so in a skillet, heat up your oil and cook the onion, garlic, and ginger until golden brown. then add in your curry paste and kinda stir fry it all together for a couple minutes. next, add the diced tomatoes, water, and chickpeas and bring to a boil. after the mixture, comes to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer for about 10 minutes. put in the chopped spinach a little at a time until it's just wilted, add cilantro and serve!
i served the curry over jasmine rice and added a healthy portion of sriracha sauce because i like my food VERY spicy. i tried my hand at making naan one time and it failed miserably! but if you are an accomplished naan maker or have access to buying it, i'd say that would be the best accompaniment to the curry.
this is a very simple (if it's too complicated, i won't make it) and comforting meal for a cold night. and paired with some vino? delightful :)
