Sanoli's Kitchen: SPINACH CURRY

Sunday, December 16, 2012


I am always on the lookout for tasty and low calorie food. Spinach is a fiberous and low fat but easy to make food, which I used to make this scrumptious curry. Very simple, yet very tasty and flavourful curry. Spinach has full of vitamins and minerals and also a good antioxidant.

20 OZ / 600 gm Baby Spinach (washed)
4-5 Cloves of Garlic
1 Cup Chopped Onion
1" Ginger
2 Tomatoes
1/2 tsp Cumin seeds
A pinch of Asafoetida
A pinch of Turmeric powder
2 tbsps Sour Cream
2-3 Green Chillies
1/3 tsp Red Chilli Powder
1 tsp Curry powder
1/2 Cup Chicken / Vegetable broth
2 tbsps Oil
1 tsp Butter (optional)
Salt to taste

Heat a frying pan. Add baby spinach in it. Saute for 3-4 minutes and remove from heat. Let it cool naturally. Blend spinach for 20 seconds to make it a paste. Set it aside.

Grind onion, green chillies, ginger, garlic and tomato to make a smooth paste. Keep it aside.

Heat oil in a pan. Add cumin seeds in it. When it starts to crackle, add asafoetida in it. Saute for another few seconds. Then add onion-garlic-ginger paste in it. After 2-3 minutes, add turmeric powder, red chilli powder, curry powder in it.

Fry till all water evaporates from it and spice leaves oil from the side of pan. Now add blended spinach and chicken / vegetable broth in it. Fold nicely for 3-4 minutes on medium heat.

At this time add sour cream in it. Saute for 1-2 minutes by adding butter.

Switch off heat. Serve hot with steamed rice or any Indian flat bread. Enjoy this easy yet scrumptious curry.
