Chickpea and spinach curry with crispy tofu slices

Once again I’d shopped without a weekly meal plan so had no idea what to make with spinach abnd also had tofu that was going out of date soon! I fancied making something with aquafaba again so created this yummy curry to use a tin of chickpeas too.
This recipes serves 2 with a big appetite. It could probably stretch to four if you added naan or poppadoms as extra accompaniments.

Bring to the boil and simmer gently for 10 minutes while you make the tofu slices.
In a shallow bowl or on a plate, mix the flour and spices together.
Drain and press the tofu to remove as much moisture as possible.
Cut the tofu into 1 centimetre thick slices and coat in the flour mix.sliced tofu
Leave on a plate then reapply at least once more to ensure a good coating

Add the spinach to the curry. It will lookoverwhelming at first but soon reduces down. Cook for 5 mnutes while the tofu fries and add the coriander 1 minute before serving.
