Finely dice your onions. Grate your ginger and garlic. Finely chop 2 of your red chillies, and slice the third.

Heat a large sauté pan over a medium heat. Add a good glug of oil, then add your cumin seeds. Cook for 2 mins until fragrant.

Step 3.

Tip in your onions and cook for 15 mins over a medium heat until soft and caramelised.

Step 4.

Meanwhile, prep your potatoes. Peel and dice them all into 3cm chunks.

Step 5.

Pop the potatoes in a pan of cold salted water and bring them to a boil. Cook for 15 mins until just tender.

Step 6.

Dice up your halloumi and fry it in a separate pan with a bit of oil until those cubes are golden on all sides.

Step 7.

Add your tomato purée, garlic, ginger and chopped chillies to the onions. Cook for 3 mins until the colour has darkened. Tip in your turmeric and cook for 2 mins more.

Step 8.

Add your thawed spinach to the pan along with 100ml of water and cook for 5 mins.

Add half of your spinach and onion mixture to a blender and blitz until smooth. Tip this back into the spinach pan and season to taste with salt and pepper.
