Unlike most of people I know I am very fond of greens.Only thing I will always feel really lazy to clean and cut them as I feel it is a tedious process.Spinach is quite easy to clean and cook compared to few other greens and also we love the taste of spinach.When ever I buy spinach I always make aloo palak,dal palak or palak paneer.Some times I also make this rice,but recently when I bought it I was craving some thing south Indian.I made astir fry with just like drum stick leaves(murunga keerai). I added roasted ground nuts at the end as I read in a magazine it will enhance the taste and it did indeed.The shredded coconut and crushed ground nuts were really awesome and took thus simple dish to one whole level up.Serve with your favorite south Indian meal,soul satisfying 🙂
