  1. Blend the spinach in a mixer to a smooth purée and keep aside.
  2. Heat the oil in a non-stick kadhai and add the cumin seeds.
  3. When the cumin seeds crackle, add the onions, garlic and ginger-green chilli paste and sauté on a medium flame for 2 minutes or till the onions turn golden brown in colour. Add a little water to avoid the onions from sticking to the kadhai.

  5. Add the kabuli chana and salt, mix well and cook for another 2 minutes, while stirring occasionally.
