The method


Peel and chop your potatoes into chunks. Boil in salted water for 10-15 minutes and then drain.


Whilst the potatoes are cooking, chop your onion, chilli, and shred the ginger.


Heat the oil over a medium heat and fry the onions until they begin to caramelise, then add the chilli and spices. Cook for a further 5 minutes and then add the ginger and garlic and fry for another 2 minutes.


Add in the spinach along with 100ml of water and the cooked potatoes. Simmer for 5 minutes until the water has evaporated and the spinach has wilted.


Season to your taste and add in the lemon juice. Enjoy!
