Palak Thoran

Preperation time: 30 min | Cooking time: 15 min

I love greens and I have tasted and prepared different varieties of dishes. This was something new I learnt from my mother-in-law. It is very easy to cook and goes very well with rice.

Palak(spinach) clean & washed-250gms
Grated coconut-3tbsp
Cumin seeds-1/2tsp
Turmeric powder-1/4tsp
Green chillies-2
Mustard seeds-1/2tsp
Red chillies-2
Garlic-1 clove(optional)
Curry leaves
Salt to taste

Take a pan add oil. When hot add mustard seeds and once it splutters add curry leaves and red chillies. Add potatoes (small cubes), a little salt and saute for sometime. Add chopped onions and cook until potato is almost done. Now make a course paste of grated coconut, garlic, cumin seeds, turmeric & green chillies without adding water. Add the chopped palak to the potato & onion mixture along with the paste. Adjust the seasoning and cook for about 10 minutes. (At this stage you may add 1 or 2 beaten eggs and scramble along with the palak mixture depending on individuals taste and is optional)
