Homemade Curry and Roti

My sister and I spent our evening making a spinach curry with roti. It was what we were craving, and so we decided to take our own spin on it. We added what we thought would taste good. Here is the recipe if you are feelin' like whipping up a curry from scratch! (I have estimated the ingredient measurements as we eyeballed everything while cooking).
Curry Ingredients:
1 chopped onion
2 cloves garlic
6 cups of spinach
4 cups of kale
1 chopped tomato
1 can of chickpeas
2 cups of okra
3 tbsp of curry powder
2 tbsp of masala powder
2 tbsp of turmeric
3 bay leaves
salt&pepper to taste

Start by adding butter, onion and garlic to the pot. Let this cook for a couple minutes
Add the spinach, kale and tomatoes to the pot. Let this cook and wilt for a few minutes.
Transfer the content in the pot to a food processor or blender. Blend this all together until it is a smooth consistency.
 Add the blended vegetables back to the pot. Throw in all of the spices (curry, masala, bay leaves, turmeric, salt and pepper) as well as the chickpeas and okra. Let this cook for about an hour.
Roti Ingredients:
1 cup of water
1 cup of spelt Flour
Salt to taste
The Finished Product:
Now I know this dish may not LOOK the most appetizing. But I promise you it TASTES great! The curry was thick, saucy and full of flavour. I hope you give it a try! 

Happy Eating
