  • 2 bunches spinach (approximately 1 lb. or 500 g.)
  • 2 tbsp. vegetable/ canola/ sunflower cooking oil
  • 1 tsp. cumin seeds
  • 2 dry red chilies (broken into 1" bits)
  • 8 to 10 cloves of garlic (chopped very fine)
  • 1 large onion (sliced very thin)
  • 1/2 tsp. red chili powder (reduce if you want less heat)
  • 1/2 tsp. turmeric powder
  • 1/2 tsp. raw mango powder (amchoor)
  • Salt (to taste)

Steps to Make It

  1. Chop off the stems on the spinach close to the roots and throw roots away. Wash the spinach very well under running water till absolutely clean.

  2. Drain fully (use a salad spinner if necessary) and then chop coarsely. Keep aside.

  3. Heat the oil in a deep pan on a medium flame. When hot, add the cumin seeds and cook till they stop spluttering. Now add the dry red chili and allow to cook for 30 seconds or till darker.

  4. Add the finely chopped garlic and fry till it starts to turn a pale golden color. Now add the onions and fry till soft.

  5. Add the spinach and mix well. Cook uncovered till the spinach wilts slightly.

  6. Add all the spices and salt to taste. Stir well to mix all ingredients. Cook for another 3 to 4 minutes and turn the fire off.

  7. Serve hot with a lentil dish like masala daal and chapatis (for a vegetarian meal) or dahi gosht (lamb in yogurt sauce) and chapatis (for a non-vegetarian meal).
