  • Spinach / palak ... 1 bunch
  • Onion ... 1 small chopped finely
  • Green chillies .. 2-3
  • Ginger ... 1 tsp grated
  • Garlic... 1 tbsp chopped or crushed coarsely for tadka / tempering
  • Turmeric powder ... 1/4 tsp
  • Coriander powder ... 1/2 tsp
  • Salt
  • Cumin seeds ... 1 tsp
  • Oil or desi ghee .. 2-3 tbsps


  • Clean the palak leaves well and cut them. In a pan heat oil or ghee and tip in the cumin seeds.
  • When they crackle, add the ginger and green chillies. Now add the onion and saute for a minute.
  • Add the spinach and coriander, turmeric powders. Add salt carefully as this sabzi reduces a lot in quantity.
  • Simmer it to cook. No need to add any water as the spinach leaves water and it will be enough to cook.
  • Once the sabzi is cooked and the water is dried up heat a little ghee in a small pan and saute the crushed garlic and make it golden brown.
  • Mix it to the prepared sabzi and mash a little with the spoon to mix well. This is usually made in Satai / Satam with mitho lolo. It also goes well with jowar or bajre ki roti.
