Heat the olive oil in a frying pan over medium-low heat. Cook the garlic and onion in the oil until translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in the spinach, chickpeas, cumin and salt. Use your stirring spoon to lightly mash the beans as the mixture cooks. Allow to cook until thoroughly heated.
I cooked it for tapas style dinner party and everyone loved it, there is a lot of scope for tweaking the recipe one of my guests suggested less curry and adding fresh herbs. Very easy to prepare and I used fresh spinach instead of frozen. - 11 Aug 2013
