1. Combine onion and Cobram Estate Extra Virgin Olive Oil in a medium sized pan and stir until onion softens. Add curry paste and gently fry until you smell the aromas. Add the water and stir to combine. 

2. Add chicken and pumpkin and stir to coat with the curry paste. Add the tomatoes, stock and coconut milk and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Reduce heat and simmer gently for 20 minutes or until pumpkin is tender. 

3. Stir in chickpeas and spinach and simmer for two minutes, stirring occasionally, or until the spinach has wilted. Serve immediately.
