Cook for 5-6 mins until the chicken is browned and cooked through. Stir in the curry paste, cook for 1 min, add the tomatoes, then cook for another min.
  2. Pour in 100ml boiling water and mix well. Simmer for 5 mins, add the spinach, then cook for 2 mins until wilted. Fold in the potatoes and heat through. Serve with rice and naan breads.

I added chickpeas and corriander about half way through the cooking and a put the sweet potatoe in raw, just cooked it longer and slowly (it is very accomodating). Next time may add greek yogurt to serve, but it's lovely without.

I added chickpeas and corriander about halfway through the cooking and I didn't cook the sweet potatoe first, just cooked it longer and slowly. May also try adding some greek yogurt at the end, but it is still lovely without this.
