Plain Spinach Fry (Palakoora Vepudu)

This is also very simple to prepare, nutritious and healthy recipe. Normally I will give more preference to green leaves in our daily food. I like and love to eat. Here is my recipe:

Spinach Fry:
Prep: 5mts
Cooking time: 10mts
Cuisine : Andhra
Serves : 2

2 bunches fresh chopped spinach (wash before chopping)
2 tbsp oil
1/2 tsp jeera
1/2 tsp mustards
few curry leaves (optional)
1 finely chopped green chilli
1 chopped big onion
a pinch of turmeric powder
1 tsp red chilli powder
2 tbsp dal powder (Dal Powder Process)
salt as per taste

1. Heat oil, add jeera and mustards, let them pop, add curry leaves, green chillies and chopped onions, fry till transparent.

2. Add turmeric powder, red chilli powder, dal powder and salt, fry for few seconds.

3. Finally add washed and chopped spinach, mix, uncovered, cook for 5 minutes or until curry comes to dry content. Turn off the heat and serve hot with rice or chapatis.

Note: 1. While adding spinach, cook uncovered, because the more water will form in the curry.

2. Do not overcook the spinach, otherwise nutritious content will be decrease.
