Spinach Fry

When we think of Calcium, we instantly think of Milk and other Dairy products. But do you know that Spinach is a good source of Calcium too? Packed with Iron, Folic acid and Calcium, Spinach sure is one powerful Leaf! We all use Spinach in dals..... here is yet another easy preparation.

1 box (10 oz) of frozen, chopped spinach
1 small onion, finely chopped
3 garlic cloves
1/2 tsp urad dal
1/4 tsp cumin seeds
4 curry leaves
3 green chillies (slit lengthwise)
1/4 tsp turmeric
salt to taste
1 tbsp Oil

Thaw frozen spinach, squeeze water, and set the spinach aside.
Heat oil in a saucepan, add seasoning of urad dal, cumin seeds, chopped garlic & curry leaves. Add onion and saute until onion turns translucent. Add spinach, salt & turmeric, green chillies and let fry for 10-15 minutes. If you dont like plain spinach flavour, add a 1/4 tsp of your favourite garam masala powder. This fry can be had with rice.
