- Low-calorie cooking spray
- 2 tsp cumin seeds
- 1 tbsp black mustard seeds
- 4 tsp ground coriander
- 2 tsp turmeric
- ½ tsp cayenne pepper
- 4 large garlic cloves, crushed
- 1 medium-hot red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
- 2 x 400g cans chopped tomatoes
- 2 x 400g cans chickpeas, drained and rinsed
- Juice of 1 small lemon
- 500g baby leaf spinach
- 4 large eggs (see tip below)
- A handful of chopped fresh coriander, to serve
Spray a large deep non-stick frying pan with low-calorie cooking spray and place over a low heat. Add all the spices, garlic, chilli and 100ml boiling water and cook gently for 1 minute, stirring. Add the tomatoes, chickpeas, lemon juice, 200ml boiling water and salt to taste and simmer for 15 minutes or until reduced and thickened.
Add half the spinach to the pan, cover and cook until it has wilted down, then repeat with the remaining spinach (the spinach will release water and loosen the mixture nicely).
Uncover, stir everything together, then make dips in the mixture and crack in the eggs. Season lightly, cover the pan again and simmer for about 5 minutes or until the whites are set and the yolks are cooked to your liking. Scatter over the coriander to serve.
