Baby Spinach Curry flavoured with Garlic and roasted Chickpea flour. Served with herby Tofu Koftas.

This is one of my favourite recipes that I developed for an assignment recently. My aim while creating any recipe is to ensure that it is simple for anyone to cook and is packed with flavour. Despite being completely Vegan, this dish is intensely flavoured with Garlic and herbs, making it lip smackingly delicious.
