  1. Preheat your slow-cooker to your preferred setting. Add the onion, garlic, ginger, pepper, sweet potato, cannellini beans, chopped tomatoes, garam masala, turmeric, half the coriander and 250ml water. Stir to combine, then cook on high for 4 hrs or on low for 6 hrs.
  2. When you’re ready to serve, stir the spinach into the masala and cook for 1-2 mins until wilted. Season with black pepper.
  3. Preheat the grill to high and cook the naans to pack instructions.
  4. Sprinkle the beans with coriander, then swirl the cream through. Serve with half a warm naan each for scooping.

Tip: If you don’t have a slow-cooker, add the ingredients from step 1 to a large pan, bring to the boil, cover with a lid, then simmer for 1 hr, stirring every 15 mins. Continue from step 2.
