1. Preheat your oven to 200°C/Fan 180°C /Gas 6. Tip the flour into a mixing bowl. Add a good pinch of salt, 1 tbsp olive oil and 5 tbsp cold water. Work the mix into a dough by kneading for a couple of mins till smooth. Cover the dough and set aside for rolling out later.
2. Peel and finely slice the onions. Peel and finely grate the garlic cloves and finely chop the chilli. Cut the tofu into rough cubes.
3. Bring a large pan or wok to a medium-high heat and pour in 1 tbsp oil. Scatter in the tofu and fry for 3-4 mins, turning once or twice, till lightly golden. Slide in the onions and reduce the heat slightly. Fry for a further 3 mins, stirring frequently, till softened, then add 1 tbsp daal spice mix, the garlic, chilli and a good pinch of salt and pepper.
4. Drain the chickpeas, pour them into the saucepan and add 3 tbsp of water. Cover the pan, reduce to a gentle simmer and gently cook for 20 mins, stirring occasionally. If it starts to look dry, add another tbsp of cold water.
5. Trim the spring onions, halve them lengthways and tumble onto a roasting tin. Toss with 1 tbsp olive oil, a pinch of salt and pepper and 1 tbsp garam masala. Slide into the oven and roast for 10 mins, till slightly charred and crispy.
6. Shred the spinach and stir into the saucepan along with the yogurt, till the leaves are wilted and everything is well combined. Keep warm.
7. Set a large frying pan on a high heat. Divide the dough in half and roll each piece out to the size of a side plate. Fry 1 at a time for 2 mins on each side, till bubbly and golden.
