SPINACH PORIYAL

Photobucket

The stir fried spinach is my family's favourite vegetable. Using fresh spinach is preferred, it is quite easy to prepare, nutritious and delicious too. If you are not keen to include the grated coconut simply omit it but still taste great. Best served with rice or roti as a side dish.

INGREDIENTS

250g fresh spinach chopped fine
4 shallots sliced
4 dry chilli break into pieces
4 tablespoons grated coconut
3 tablespoons moong dal (soak for 30 minutes)
2 cloves garlic chopped
1/2 teaspoon mustard seed
salt to taste
oil for frying

METHOD

1. Heat the oil, fry the mustard seed, onion, garlic and dry chilli for 3 minutes.

2. Add spinach, mooong dal, cover and cook for 5 minutes. Do not add water.

3. Now add coconut and salt, stir for few more minutes.

4. Remove from heat and serve hot.
