Happy New Year to all. I wanted to start the first post of the year with something sweet but, the that has to wait, and I want to be consistent here, by posting at least one recipe a week so thought of posting something I made for the first time and it was super tasty and everyone like it at home. This recipe was made in November and I can still feel the taste. It was one of the best recipes that I have made and came out well in the first try itself. It’s easy, healthy and yummy. This recipe is actually made with loads of ghee and butter, since I try to make all my recipes vegan, I have not added any butter or ghee, this recipe is a bit twisted according to my needs also its almost like plain palak recipe, and the saag was super tasty. Ok let’s start making.

Basic Information:
Preparation Time: 15 minutes.
Idle Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 mins
Serves : 4 to 6 people

WHAT YOU WILL NEED

2 bunches of sarson/mustard leaves

1 bunch of palak /spinach

1 bunch of chakothe soppu/papu kuraku/mountain spinach

1 small onion chopped + 1 tbsp chopped onion

1 tomato chopped

10 green chillies

2 tsp ginger garlic

1 tsp garam masala

1 tsp salt

In a hot pan, add 2 tsp oil, small chopped onion, chillies, ginger garlic paste and roast it for 3to 5 minutes, until the onions are translucent.

Once the onion is translucent add the greens and let them wilt, it may take 10 to 15 minutes. Once the greens are soft let it cool down.

In another pan add the 1 tbsp oil, once hot add jeera and when it splutters, add the onion and tomato and fry it for 5 minutes

While the onion and tomato are cooking grind the above mixture into smooth paste.

Now add the above paste into the pan, mix well, now add the gram masala, salt and mix well, simmer it for 5 to 10 minutes and its ready to serve.

Notes

Instead oil you can use butter and ghee or either one of them.

Though mine was vegan version it tasted very good, I felt there was no compromise in taste.

Even radish greens are added, I have heard but I have not tried that version
