IntroductionA thick spinach curry A thick spinach curry
2 bunch spinach
1/4-1/3 cup skimmed milk
2 tbsp chopped onions
3 medium tomatoes (finely chopped)
1.5 tsp ginger-garlic paste (I have explained how you make it)
1.5 tsp paprika
2 tbsp sunflower oil
A pinch of turmeric
Salt to taste (I use a teaspoon of salt)
2. Blanche the spinach in boiling water until the leaves become soft enough to puree. It takes about 2 minutes.
3.Now puree the spinach adding milk slowly as needed. Add enough milk to make a thick puree. Depending on the spinach you'll need 1/4-1/3 cup of milk
4. Sautee the onions on a medium flame until it turns golden brown
5 Add ginger-garlic paste and fry for 2 minutes
6. Add the chopped tomatoes. Once the tomatoes become soft add turmeric, salt and paprika.
7. When the mixture becomes uniform, add the pureed spinach and cook for 2 minutes.
Your Palak Saag is now ready. It tastes amazing served with Indian breads. You can also eat with regular bread or rice. This makes about 4 half cup servings. You can add some cottage cheese/ tofu along with the tomatoes if you like.
Number of Servings: 4
