Wishing you all a Happy and prosperous 2017. Hope you all had a great time partying and celebrating with near and dear ones. Today I am sharing a very easy recipe to beat the Monday blues. Requires minimal ingredients and when paired up with rice and ghee makes a heavenly combination. Even a roasted appalam makes a great side dish to this. Although many people make this as a side dish for Mor Kozumbu, this is also a complete dish when eaten with rice.

Ingredients:

Spinach: 1 bunch

To temper:

Oil: 1 tsp

Mustard Seeds: 1 tsp

Urad Dal: 1 tsp

Red Chilli : 1

A pinch of Hing

Method:

  1. Clean the spinach and wash thoroughly under water till water runs clean.
  2. Blanch this spinach for a couple of minutes in hot water with a pinch if turmeric and salt. This helps remove the impurities.
  3. Remove from the hot water and run under cold water immediately. This will help spinach retain its green color.
  4. Puree in a mixer.
  5. Transfer the puree in a bowl, adjust water (add only little) , add salt and bring it to boil.
  6. Temper with “to temper” items and serve hot with rice and ghee,alongside appalam.

If it becomes watery, add rice flour mixed with water and adjust the consistency.
