I make this once a week. A quick lunch vegetable. It really tastes good. It is very similar to other vegetables I cooks, so bear with me. Please adjust the spices to your liking

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat the oil.
  2. Add the thymol seeds (ajwain in hindi).
  3. Add the ginger, garlic and onions.
  4. When the onions get soft, add the spinach.
  5. Add all the spices and salt.
  6. ** I microwave my spinach for about 8 minutes. Cook the spinach to the doneness level you like.
  7. ** Variations - I sometimes add boiled potatoes, tomatoes or yogurt to this. All the variations taste good :)
  8. ** Another variation - If you want sort of a gravy add some water mixed with corn starch and add alongwith the spinach.

This was outstanding even with frozen spinach. Not having the green chilies, I opted to use 1 dried red chili. I did use a package of frozen spinach that had been defrosted and most of the excess water removed. This was served as a side with Goan Beef Curry. It made 3 nice servings.

I really liked this recipe. I used a whole bag of frozen spinach (6 cups), doubled all the other ingredients, and omitted the salt and the thymol seeds. It was the perfect compliment to lentils with basmati rice. Next time I may add some minced garlic.
