chick pea, spinach and sweet potato curry

400 gms sweet potato, peeled and chopped
1 can chick peas
1 large onion finely chopped
2 cloves of garlic, chopped
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tspn ground cumin
2 tspn curry powder
2 bay leaves
1 400g can of chopped tomatoes
about 200g baby spinach leaves

Mix the oil, onion, garlic, curry powder and cumin in a non stick fry pan and heat until the onion is soft, then add the rest of the ingredients, except the spinach leaves and cook over a gentle heat for 20-30 minutes, or the sweet potato is soft. Stir through the spinach and serve with rice.
serves 4
This is mild if you prefer a stronger curry add more cumin and curry. Add baby rocket instead of the spinach. Could use pumpkin instead of sweet potato.

This was very yummy - thanks! I added a bit of water when it was cooking though, to stop it drying out too much.
