Spinach Curry

Spinach Curry

Spinach tastes amazing spiced up and it is magical seeing how it transforms when cooked. It starts off super volumized as per the photo below. 

 

It then becomes a beautiful dish like the one pictured below. How? Well here is my recipe 🙂 

 

Ingredients:

  • 200g spinach (I used baby spinach)
  • 1 large tomato, pureed
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 1 tablespoon ginger
  • 1 red onion, chopped
  • 1 green chilli chopped
  • Handful of curry leaves
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1 teaspoon ajwain seeds
  • 2 tablespoons oil. I used coconut oil for a healthier versin but you can use vegetable oil.

Ground spices:

  • 1/2 teaspoon red chilli powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon cumin and coriander powder (dhana jeeru)
  • 1 teaspoon garam masala

Tip: Instead of the ground spices mentioned above, you can add 2 teaspoons of Nicos Polle Polle Spice Mix which tastes amazing and can be purchased from:
