Palak/Spinach & Tomatoes

DSC01633 I wanted to whip up quickly something for lunch and what better than using tomatoes and greens for a quick dish. A quick sauté of tomatoes and spinach with just the chili powder as spice, tangy and very fulfilling with a bowl of rice. This dish can be prepared in so many ways and different flavors just by using different ingredients like garlic or curry leaves or some whole masala/spices for a different flavor!

Ingredients:
1 bunch Spinach, chopped
2 –3  medium tomatoes, chopped
2 tbsp oil
1/2 cup chopped onions
1/4 tsp mustard seeds
1 tsp chili powder or according to taste
pinch of turmeric
julienned ginger
salt to taste

Preparation Method:
1. Clean, rinse and chop the spinach leaves.
2. Heat oil in vessel or large pan. Add mustard seeds. As they splutter, add onions and sauté till translucent.
3. Add chopped tomatoes and saute till cooked.
4. Add chopped spinach, turmeric, chili powder and salt. Add julienned ginger and stir for few minutes.
5. Remove from heat and serve with rice, roti or bread.

Preparation Time: 10 mins
Serves: 2 – 3

Note: For a dry curry, let the water evaporate and oil separate from the sides before adding spinach.
