Using the same method of caramelising the onions quickly for ‘French Onion Soup’ and frozen Spinach, you can make this curry very easily. If you don’t enjoy Coriander, just add more Spinach or other green vegetables such as Kale. The green beans in the photo are Edamame (young soy beans) for the crunchy texture. You can add cooked chickpeas instead.
