Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Chana Masala, Mint Raita & Naan

Preheat the oven to 200°C/ 180°C (fan)/ 400°F/ Gas 6

Boil a kettle

Peel and finely slice the brown onion[s]

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a drizzle of vegetable oil over a low heat

Once hot, add the sliced onion with a generous pinch of salt and cook for 10-15 min until softened and caramelised

2 Chana Masala, Mint Raita & Naan

Meanwhile, peel (scrape the skin off with a teaspoon) and finely chop (or grate) the ginger

Chop the coriander finely, including the stalks (reserve a few leaves for garnish)

Cut the red chilli[es] in half lengthways, deseed (scrape the seeds out with a teaspoon) and chop finely

3 Chana Masala, Mint Raita & Naan

Drain and rinse the chickpeas

Chop the cherry tomatoes in half

Dissolve 1/2 [1] Knorr vegetable stock cube in 200ml [400ml] boiled water

4 Chana Masala, Mint Raita & Naan

Wash the spinach, then add it to a colander and pour boiled water all over it so that it starts to wilt

Rinse the wilted spinach under the cold tap until it's cool

Once cool, squeeze the water out of the spinach as much as you can then chop it roughly

5 Chana Masala, Mint Raita & Naan

Once the onion has softened, increase the heat to medium, add the garam masala and turmeric and cook for 1 min or until fragrant

Add the chopped ginger, coriander and chilli (can't handle the heat? Go easy!) with the tomato paste and cook for 1 min further

Add the stock, cherry tomatoes and drained chickpeas and cook for 10 min or until the liquid has reduced to a thick sauce

6 Chana Masala, Mint Raita & Naan

While the sauce is thickening, add the mini coriander naans to a baking tray

Put the tray in the oven and cook for 5 min or until warmed through

7 Chana Masala, Mint Raita & Naan

Meanwhile, combine the natural yoghurt and mint sauce with a pinch of salt in a bowl – this is your cheat's raita

Once the sauce has thickened, stir the chopped spinach through the chickpea curry – this is your chana masala
