    Girl from India's Note:

    Something yummy and different. The trick is to have the oil really hot before putting the spinach in and the spinach will not absorb a lot of oil. It is a good starter as it is light. THe oil should be brought back to the same temperature between each batch.

      Very yummy! I could just eat this all the time. Was easy to make. However, do not despair if it takes time for the spinach to turn crispy. I cooked on in a regular wok and I think the oil doesn't get hot enough so I had to cook it for about 10 minutes. It turned crispy and was so very good! Thanks, Zoe

      Wow, wow, wow! I was looking for a way to replicate the saag chaat served at a very upscale Indian restaurant. This has different flavors, but is absolutely delicious. We used very hot oil and just roughly cut up the spinach with scissors. So tasty!!
