To make the mari­nade, blitz all of the in­gre­di­ents to a paste in a food pro­ces­sor. Cut the chicken into large cubes and shake around in a freezer bag with the mari­nade un­til well cov­ered. Re­frig­er­ate for at least a few hours.

Pre­heat your oven to 180˚C/350˚f/gas mark 4. Chop the broc­coli into flo­rets, toss in a splash of veg­etable oil and ar­range in a bak­ing tray. Roast for about 10 min­utes or un­til it just starts to char.

Chop the re­main­ing red onion and cook in a large, heavy-based fry­ing pan with a splash of veg­etable oil un­til soft. Add the chicken and the mari­nade to the pan and fry un­til the meat is lightly browned. Pour in the tinned toma­toes and cook for about 10 min­utes.

Add the broc­coli, to­gether with the chick­peas, tomato purée and spinach. Stir ev­ery­thing well, then place a lid on the pan to wilt the spinach. Give the dish an­other good stir and taste for sea­son­ing. Squeeze over a lit­tle lemon juice.

Heat the flat­breads in a lightly oiled, hot fry­ing pan. Put one on each plate, topped with a spoon­ful of curry, a dol­lop of yo­ghurt and a scat­ter­ing of co­rian­der. Serve im­me­di­ately.
