Spinach: Sauted Spinach

Spinach Vazhyattiyathu: Sauted Spinach

A medely of leafy vegtables, red, green, purple and memories of the humble drumstick leaves upperi: a quick saute in coconut oil, sometimes a clove of garlic, maybe a lightly crushed  red pearl onion, perhaps a garnish of fresh grated coconut. Was always a favourite with the ladies. Here I have used fresh, organic spinach leaves, 10 stems.

10 stems of fresh spinach /6-7 cups of tightly packed chopped spinach leaves
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
2 finger hot green chillies
1 dried red chilli
2 small cloves of garlic
1 tbsp oil
Heat the oil,
Lightly crush the garlic cloves and saute until soft,
Add the broken red chilli  and the slit green chillies,
Saute for a couple of minutes,
Add the washed and drained spinach leaves
Cook until done.
Season with salt and serve.
This will go to the Healing foods Event-Spinach hosted by Divya of Dil Se..
