Spinach Stir fry

I usually make spinach with Toor Dal. I tried this fry and liked it a lot and i am going to make spinach only this way from now onwards :-) It tastes great with either Roti or Rice. Easy to make and Healthy.


6 to 7 cups of fresh chopped spinach
1 big finely chopped onion
1 Tbsp minced garlic (5 to 6 crushed garlic flakes)
1 Tbsp roasted chickpea/dalia/putnala pappu powder
salt to taste

For seasoning

1 Tbsp Oil ( I use Olive oil)
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
pinch of asafoetida
pinch of turmeric powder
1 tsp black gram dal (Urad Dal)
2 dry-red chillies de-seeded
2 green chillies cut lengthwise
few curry leaves

1) Heat Oil in a Pan, splutter mustard seeds, add cumin seeds and Urad dal and once Dal turns light brown add turmeric powder and asafoetida, minced garlic, red chillies, green chillis, curry leaves and fry for few seconds. Do not burn

2) Now add the Onions and salt and fry until onions turn light brown. Add the chopped spinach and stir fry in medium heat until spinach is cooked which will take around 10 mins.

3) Turn off the heat and spread roasted chickpea powder and mix.

Serve Hot with Roti/ steamed Rice
