Spinach / palak has a high nutritional value. I add a few leaves in most of my dishes, both veg & non veg like we add coriander leaves.  Today I have tried out yogurt kadhi with palak.

Yogurt / curd...... 1 cup
Gram flour / besan ... 1 tbsp
Spinach / Palak ... 1/2 cup (finely chopped)
Coriander leaves ... handful
Grated ginger ..... 1 tsp
Curry leaves ...... few
Green chillies ... 1-2
Cumin seeds ... 1 tsp
Methi seeds ..... 1/2 tsp
Asafoetida...... 2 pinches
Cinnamon .... a small piece
Cloves .........  2
Turmeric powder .... 1/8 tsp
Salt .......... to taste
Sugar ..... 1/4 or 1/2 tsp (as you like it)
Oil ...... 2-3 tsps

1. In a pan heat oil. Add asafoetida, Cumin and methi seeds. When they crackle add the cinnamon stick, cloves, curry leaves, green chillies, ginger and palak. Saute for a minute.
2. Blend the yogurt and besan together adding 2 cups water. Pour it into the pan.
3. Add the salt, sugar and turmeric powder. When it starts boiling, simmer it and let it cook for 8-10 minutes.
4. Garnish with coriander leaves and serve with plain rice.
