Oil free spinach

spinach

  • This was accidental. I just forgot to add oil and still tasted so good. Didn’t miss oil at all.
  • This is my mom’s simple recipe where fresh chopped spinach, little chopped onion  with  spices like  ginger- garlic paste, turmeric powder, red chilli powder, cumin-coriander powder, salt cooked together. You can add little oil too but do try without oil.  Add some chopped tomatoes once spinach is little cooked and cook again until tomatoes are cooked.
  • Without oil, it still tasted very buttery. Natural flavour of spinach came out. Fresh spinach is must here.
  • Spinach is the  most nourishing liver food according to chinese medicine. And spring is a good time to include spinach in diet.
