Easy Indian food is the perfect crowd pleaser for weekend family meals.

Add the thinly sliced garlic and chilli flakes to the cold oil in a big pan or wok and then turn the hob to its lowest setting. Gently fry the garlic until golden for about 8-10 minutes, to bring out its toasty aroma. 

Turn up the heat and add one packet of spinach. Stir until the leaves have reduced in volume and then add the second packet. Cook for 2 minutes until the leaves have wilted. 

This side dish makes a tasty match with pomegranate raita and hot naan.
