Recipe Notes

  • Make it a complete meal by stirring in some cooked, shredded chicken or pork.
  • You could use jasmine, brown or long-grain white rice instead of basmati. 

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Heat the oil in a skillet. Add the onion and cook until soft, about 3 minutes. Add the turmeric, cumin, garam masala and crushed red pepper flakes. Cook, stirring, about 1 minute.
  2. Add the rice and broth. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for about 7 to 8 minutes, stirring often.
  3. Add the chickpeas and spinach. Cook until the spinach wilts, about 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Add the lemon juice and cilantro. Stir and serve.
