Spinach and Chickpea curry

Chickpeas with spinach is the wonderful combo for the naan/rice. I made this curry for the first time. These chick peas are available in many varities I would prefer white large chickpeas (Senagalu) for this recipe. If you are planning to prepare this curry you should plan a day before, because you have to soak the dry chickpeas overnight. If you have canned chickpeas, you can just wash and use instantly.
