    Add the ginger, garlic, tomato purée, turmeric, spices and a good pinch of salt to the cooked onions. Stir well and cook for 1 min to warm up the spices – you will be able to smell them when you open the microwave.

    Add the tomatoes, spinach leaves, chickpeas, coconut milk and chopped coriander, and stir well. Cook for 2 mins, then stir again, followed by another 2 mins. The curry should be bubbling slightly. If not, give it another minute.
