Robert Snodgrass scored the only goal as Norwich moved away from the relegation zone and dented Tottenham’s top-four hopes.
Scotland winger Snodgrass curled his low shot from 18 yards beyond Hugo Lloris after Bradley Johnson’s pass.
Goalkeeper John Ruddy helped Norwich to victory, denying Emmaunel Adebayor and Nacer Chadli in the second half.
Norwich came close to doubling their advantage when Johnson thundered a free-kick off the underside of the bar.
It was Norwich’s second victory in 12 league games and a significant boost for manager Chris Hughton, who was under growing pressure following comments made by chief executive David McNally earlier in February.
Hughton’s side created the better chances and stood firm as Tottenham tried in vain to claw their way back into the match.
Nigerian defender, Joseph Yobo also had a good match, as he combined well with the other defenders to deny Spurs a win.
It was a lacklustre display from the visitors, who failed to score in the Premier League for the first time since Tim Sherwood took over in December.
