Spinach is one vegetable that I like to try out in many different variations. We all know that it is loaded with nutrition. I like to add few leaves to all my curries and dals like we add the coriander leaves. This curry with smoky flavour caught my attention in Pari's blog - Foodelicious
I tried it out and it was awesome ! Here is the recipe ....

Spinach .. 1 bunch (blanched and pureed)
Potatoes .. 3-4 (peeled and cubed)
Onion ... 2 ( chopped finely)
Tomatoes ... 2 (roasted on the gas flame and peeled)
Ginger .. 1 inch piece
Garlic .. 1 tbsp (crushed)
Coriander powder .. 1 tsp
Red chilli powder ... 1/2 tsp (add more if you like it spicier)
Turmeric powder ... 1/2 tsp
Salt ... to tatse
Oil ... 3-4 tbsps


1. Roast the tomatoes on the gas flame and peel away the skin after cooling.
2.  Heat oil in a pan. Add garlic, ginger and saute until brown.

 3. Add the onions and fry until they are brown in colour.

4. Add the roasted and peeled tomatoes, salt and spices. Fry until the oil separates.

5.Now tip in the potato pieces and stir fry. Cover and let them cook.
