  • 1 onion
  • 3 tomatoes
  • 400g or 14 ounces or 2 tins chick peas
  • 50g or 2 ounces raisins
  • 400g or 14 ounces spinach leaves
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 200ml or 7 fluid ounces veg stock
  • 45ml or 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 5ml or 1 teaspoon cumin powder
  • 5ml or 1 teaspoon curry powder



Peel the onion and chop, then add to the oil in a large heated pan and cook for 2 minutes. Add the spices and continue cooking for another 3 minutes. Chop the tomatoes and add to the pan. After a couple of stirs add the chick peas and the stock and bring to the boil. Cover and simmer the mixture for 5 minutes. Add the raisins at this point, then add the baby spinach leaves and allow them to wilt for 5 minutes. Season well and serve in bowls as a main course with crusty cob or naan bread.
