Before starting, preheat the oven to 450˚F. Wash and dry all produce. Heat Guide for Step 3 (dbl for 4 ppl): 1/8 tsp mild, 1/4 tsp medium, 1/2 tsp spicy and 1 tsp extra-spicy! Peel, then cut onion into 1/4-inch pieces. Peel, then mince or grate garlic. Roughly chop cilantro. Finely chop chili, removing seeds for less heat. (TIP: We suggest using gloves when prepping chilis!) Drain and rinse black beans.
Add 1 1/4 cups water and 1/8 tsp salt (dbl both for 4 ppl) to a medium pot. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Once boiling, add rice, then reduce heat to low. Cover and cook until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed, 12-14 min. Remove the pot from heat. Set aside, still covered.
While rice cooks, heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat. When hot, add 2 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then onions. Season with 1 tsp salt (dbl for 4 ppl). Cook, stirring often, until onions soften, 4-5 min. Add Indian Spice Mix and half the garlic. Cook, stirring often, until fragrant, 1-2 min. Add tomato sauce base, curry paste and 1/2 tsp chilis. (NOTE: Reference heat guide.) Cook, stirring often, until sauce thickens, 2-3 min.
Add coconut milk, black beans and 1 tsp sugar (dbl for 4 ppl) to the pan. Season with salt and pepper, then stir to combine. Bring to a boil over medium-high. Once boiling, reduce heat to medium. Cook, stirring occasionally, until curry thickens slightly, 6-8 min.
While curry cooks, combine remaining garlic and 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl) in a small bowl. Arrange naan on an unlined baking sheet. Spread garlic oil over naan, then season with salt. Toast in the middle of the oven until golden-brown, 2-4 min. (TIP: Keep your eye on the naan, so they don't burn!)
Add spinach to curry. Stir until wilted. Fluff rice with a fork. Halve or quarter naan. Divide rice and curry between plates. Sprinkle with cilantro. Serve garlic naan on the side for dipping.
