Can be served with rice or naan and is nice with a dollop of homemade yogourt. I usually add hot sauce since this is not a very spicy dish.

Add onion and saute till soft
Add tomatoes, ginger garlic paste and cook till it resembles a thick paste (5-7 min)
Add garam masala and cook a minute more
Add spinach and vegetable broth, cook till wilted
Puree using immersion blender (optional)
