New potato and mince curry

This is normally a chris special but I made it last week! It is from our big green book of good food recipes. Be careful not to make it too hot, you’ll need plenty of yoghurt. Serve with rice and naan, and a mango lassi helps too!

450g minced beef
1 tbsp oil
1 small onion
3 garlic cloves
1 tbsp grated root ginger
1 red chilli (I freeze these and use straight from freezer)
2 tsp cumin
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp curry paste
500g new potatoes in skins (I use just any small ones)
100g fresh spinach
150ml yoghurt

Brown mince
Remove from pan, put oil in and fry onion
Add crushed garlic, spices and curry paste and stir fry for 1 minute
Add mince, potatoes and 600ml water
Simmer for 30 mins
Stir in spinach and simmer for 1 min
Swirl in yoghurt and serve
