Method

Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat.

Add onion and cook, stirring frequently, until softened and golden brown, about 9 minutes.

Add cumin, coriander and cayenne to skillet and stir to coat onions with spices.

Cook for 1 minute, then add diced tomatoes, 1/3 cup water, sugar and tamarind concentrate. Stir to mix well.

Add chickpeas and bring mixture to a gentle boil. Reduce heat and simmer over medium low heat, uncovered, for 10 minutes.

Stir in spinach and cook just until wilted. Season with salt and pepper, then spoon into bowls and serve.
