Today we are going to prepare a very rich combination of meat, legumes and vegetables. East chicken, chickpea and spinach curry It is a complete, healthy and delicious dish if you like spices or oriental flavors.

In itself, the dish is already very complete, but you can also accompany it with a little white rice, preferably basmati, which because of its aroma goes perfectly with this dish.

If you dare to cook the legumes yourself, great, but if you are lazy or have little time to use chickpeas Once cooked, the dish will be equally delicious.

The spinach They can be used both fresh and frozen and with respect to chicken, I like more to use the thigh because it is juicier, but you can also use breast if you like it more.

Of course the final result of this dish will also depend a lot on the quality of the curry that you use, since the curry that we find in the little bottles in supermarkets is not the same as the curry that you can find in specialized stores or the one that you can have from a trip to the Asian area. For this recipe, I have been lucky enough to be able to use a curry that my in-laws brought me from a trip they made to India. Curry is nothing more than a combination of spices in variable proportions depending on the region where it is made, so another option would be to make your own combination of spices yourself.
