Ingredients

  • 2 bunches spinach (approximately 1 lb or 500 gms)

  • 2 tbsps vegetable/ canola/ sunflower cooking oil
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 2 dry red chillies broken into 1" bits
  • 8-10 cloves of garlic chopped very fine
  • 1 large onion sliced very thin
  • 1/2 tsp red chilli 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

  • 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.

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

  • 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 chilli and allow to cook for 30 seconds or till darker.

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

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

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

  • Serve hot with a lentil dish like Masala Daal and Chapatis (for a vegetarian meal) or Dahi Gosht (lamb in yoghurt sauce) and Chapatis (for a non-vegetarian meal).
