This chunky tomato-based curry is loaded with chickpeas, potatoes, and fresh spinach and is made using a homemade curry paste. The spices are quite mild, so if you enjoy hot and spicy food, go ahead and throw in some more chili and garam masala. The curry is ideally served with basmati rice, but any grain that you have on hand also works.

For the Curry Paste:

  • 1 large onion
  • 1/2–1 chili
  • 5 garlic cloves
  • 1-inch piece ginger

For the Curry:

  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1 teaspoon mustard seeds
  • 2 teaspoons cumin seeds
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 14.5-ounce can chopped tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon cilantro powder
  • 1 tablespoon garam masala
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh spinach
  • 2 14-ounce cans of chickpeas
  • Approximately 2.2 pounds of potatoes, cut
  • 2 cups water, plus more as needed


  1. Blend all the curry paste ingredients in a food processor.
