Dal I Gravies I Curry

PALAK KADHI | SPINACH IN YOGURT CURRY

Just the way we use Spinach leaves to make Dal Palak, I used them to make kadhi. It’s like a normal Kadhi, just with the addition of Palak. Tastes great with Bajra or Jowar Rotis or even with Rice and regular Rotis. It’s healthy and gluten free too.

METHOD

  • Wash Spinach Leaves thoroughly, finely chop them and keep aside.
  • In a wide deep pan, heat oil.
  • Crackle Cumin & Mustard Seeds.
  • Now add Fenugreek Seeds, Asafoetida and Dry Red Chilli. You can use Green Chillies instead.
  • Also add finely chopped Ginger & Garlic. Saute for a few seconds.
  • Add thinly sliced Onion and cook until they brown a little.
  • Now add the Spinach Leaves, mix well and let it cook on low flame. The leaves will start to wilt and reduce in size within minutes. Stir occasionally.
  • In the meantime, mix Gram Flour with Yogurt.
  • Also add Turmeric Powder, Kashmiri Red Chilli Powder and Salt.
  • You can additionally also add in other spice powders like Cumin, Coriander and Garam Masala. I haven’t.
  • Combine everything well to form a lump free thick batter.
  • To this add 2-3 cups of water. Mix well.
  • Add this Yogurt mix to the Spinach and keep stirring continuously till it reaches a boil.
  • Add more water as per your preference.
  • You can increase the flame and cook but remember that stirring is important to avoid the yogurt from breaking and the gram flour from clumping.
  • You can now simmer the flame and cook until you no longer can feel the raw taste of gram flour.
  • Serve hot with rotis, bhakris or rice 🙂
