Prepare the Ingredients:
Finely chop the onion, mince the garlic, and grate the ginger.
Peel and cube the sweet potato.
Drain and rinse the chickpeas.
Roughly chop the spinach.
Cook the Aromatics:
Heat the olive oil in a large pot or Dutch oven over medium heat.
Add the chopped onion and cook until it becomes soft and translucent, about 5-7 minutes.
Add the minced garlic and grated ginger, and cook for another 1-2 minutes until fragrant.
Add the Spices:
Stir in the curry powder, ground cumin, ground coriander, turmeric powder, and chili powder.
Cook for about 1 minute, stirring constantly, to toast the spices and release their flavors.
Add Sweet Potato and Chickpeas:
Add the cubed sweet potato and chickpeas to the pot, stirring to coat them with the spices.
Add Tomatoes and Coconut Milk:
Pour in the diced tomatoes and their juice, as well as the coconut milk.
Stir to combine all the ingredients.
Simmer the Curry:
Add the vegetable broth, bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to a simmer.
Cover the pot and let it cook for about 20-25 minutes, or until the sweet potatoes are tender.
Add Spinach:
Stir in the chopped spinach and cook for an additional 5 minutes until the spinach is wilted and incorporated into the curry.
Season and Serve:
Season the curry with salt and pepper to taste.
Stir in the lime juice.
Garnish with fresh cilantro.
