2 tablespoons cooking oil
2 teaspoons salt (divided)
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/8 teaspoon or pinch citric acid

If you want to make this vegetarian/vegan, you can leave out the meat.
If you are eating keto/low carb diet, you can eat it without rice and leave out chickpeas.
Frozen spinach can be used instead of fresh.
Instant Pot/Pressure Cooker instructions (pressure cooking reduces time in half):
For the step when the meat is boiled for 5 - 10 minutes, use the sauté button to boil (no need to cover).
For the step where you cook the meat for 50 minutes, pressure cook on high for 25 minutes and use quick release.
For the step when you boil with tomato paste for 20 minutes, pressure cook on high for 10 minutes and use quick release.
