A bunch of spinach ( around 600-700 grams)
200 gms paneer (cottage cheese)
seeds of 1 brown cardamom
3-4 pepper corns(black)
3 onions-grind in a mixer
2 tomatoes-grind alongwith onions
1' piece ginger-chopped
1 tbsp dried fenugreek leaves
1/4 tsp dried mango powder
3 tbsp fresh cream
2 tbsp oil
salt to taste
1.Boil chopped spinach alongwith ginger for 10 minutes.
2.Heat oil,add seeds of cardamom,cloves & pepper corns.Add ground onion,tomato paste & stir on low flame for 5 minutes.
4.Add dried mango powder.Add boiled spinach & cook for 2-3 minutes.Remove from fire.Let it cool.
5. Meanwhile chop the cottage cheese into small pieces like this
6.Cool & blend the spinach for a few secods,do not grind it too fine.Now add 1/2 cup of milk if you find it too thick & simmer covered for 2-3 minutes.
7.Now beat the fresh cream with a fork & add it to the spinach on low fire.
8.Add the cottage cheese pieces,give it a boil.I prefer adding salt at this last stage as I get a better idea of the quantity after the spinach has been simmered,besides the milk & cream do not curdle!!!!!
9. Simmer for 2 minutes & transfer it to a serving dish & TaDaaaaa.............you are done!!!!!!!!!!
Doesnt it look tempting:)
This tastes best with Indian flat bread called roti or parantha.I guess I will add a recipe on how to make them too.But first I have to make them for my own lunch:)
