METHI PALAK WITH CHETTINAD MASALA


Chettinad Cuisine is so spicy and delicious. These days I have tried out several new dishes with this masala. Methi Palak is one of them. The taste is really awesome. It can go well with rice, rotis, dosas and appams too.

Ingredients:
Palak / spinach ..... 1 bunch (chopped)
Methi / fenugreek .... 1 cup (leaves)
Garlic ................ 1 tbsp (crushed)
Green chillies ..... 2-3
Tomato puree..... 1 tbsp ( or 1 small tomato)
Grated coconut .... 1 tbsp
Chettinad masala ... 1 tbsp ( See Recipe - HERE )
(You can make Chettinad masala in large quantity and store in the refrigerator)
Turmeric powder .... 1/8 tsp
Salt ............... to taste
Oil .. ... 2-3 tbsp
Tempering:
Mustard seeds ....
Cumin seeds ....... 1 tsp
Urad dal .............. 1 tsp
Asafoetida ......... a pinch
Method:
1. Wash the greens.Drain and set aside.
2. In a pan heat the oil. Add the tempering ingredients. When they crackle, add the crushed garlic and green chillies.
3. Saute and add the greens, tomato puree and salt. Simmer to cook.
4. When half done add the Chettinad masala, grated coconut and the turmeric powder.
5. Sprinkle little water if needed and cover to cook until done.
