Keerai Masiyal - Spinach saute

I happened to remain dormant for about a week. There is no big reason. Somehow was caught up with lot of other work the whole week. Felt guilty for not looking at the blog for a while. Thought should definitely post something today. I made this today for my lunch. I love greens. In a week I make spinach atleast twice. I like to mix it with just steamed rice and eat. Or just cook it with some moong dhal and just add salt to it and i could eat a cup of it. This time I made this sauté. Its slightly different from our regular keerai kootu.


Spinach - 1 bunch
Onion - 1/2 finely chopped
Tomato - 1 chopped fine
Ginger - 1 tbps chopped
Cumin Seeds - 1 tsps
Asafoetida - a pinch
Green Chili - 1 slit into half


In a pan heat a tbsps oil. Add cumin seeds . Let it fry for few seconds and add asafoetida. Now add green chilli and ginger. Saute for about 10 seconds and add chopped onion. Fry for about a min and then add tomatoes.

Saute till tomato is almost cooked. Now add spinach, salt and mix well. Close it with lid and keep checking and mixing once in a while till spinach cooks well. Cook in medium heat. Add water only if necessary.

Once it is cooked, serve it with hot steamed rice and papad or with roti.
