    See the Tips & Tricks section at the bottom of the page for directions on how to cook white rice.
  2. Heat a splash (a spoonful or two) of cooking oil in a pot over medium heat. Add the diced onion and garlic with a pinch of salt and pepper and cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring frequently, until onion starts to turn clear and fragrant.
  3. Add the spices and chicken to the pot with another pinch of salt and pepper, stirring to incorporate. Cook for another 4-5 minutes or so, stirring frequently, until the outside of the chicken is no longer pink or raw.
  4. Add the tomato sauce, coconut milk, and one more pinch of salt to the pot and stir, making sure to scrape up any spices that have gotten stuck to the bottom of the pot.
  5. Turn the heat up to medium-high and cover the pot, letting the curry come up to a boil. Once it’s boiling, add the spinach, stir for a minute or two to let the spinach wilt into the curry, and then reduce the heat to medium-low. Let the curry simmer, uncovered, for another 8-9 minutes.
  6. Slice the lime into wedges. Portion the cooked rice into bowls, ladle the curry over the rice, squeeze some lime juice on top, and enjoy!

Tips & Tricks

Not sure how to cook white rice? Measure out 2 cups of water for every cup of rice and bring it to a boil in a small pot. Rice expands, so make sure the pot is at least twice as big as the volume of the water. When the water is boiling, add rice and a pinch of salt to the pot, turn the heat down to low, and cover the pot. Cook for 18-25 minutes, or until the rice is tender and no longer crunchy. Fluff with a fork and serve!
