Spinach Mushroom Sabzi

Spinach Mushroom Sabzi

 You’ll need the following ingredients:


• two tablespoons oil

• six cups chopped spinach

• two cups mushroom cubes

• one teaspoon cumin seeds

• 2-3 cloves • one bayleaf

• one tablespoon fresh cream

• one teaspoon garlic paste

• half teaspoon green chili paste

• half teaspoon ginger paste

• one cup finely chopped onions

• half cup finely chopped tomatoes

• one teaspoon chili powder

• one teaspoon coriander seeds (or coriander powder) (also known as kasuri methi)


To prepare the Spinach Mushroom Sabzi, follow these steps:


Step 1: To begin, fill a wide and deep nonstick pan with around 4-5 cups of water. Bring it to a boil, then add the spinach and simmer for 3-4 minutes on a medium heat.


Remember to stir periodically and don’t add too much or too little water if you want the spinach to be thoroughly cooked.


Step 2: When the spinach is done, remove it from the heat, drain it, and set it aside to cool fully. Once the spinach has cooled, place it in a blender and puree until smooth. Keep in mind that no water should be added.


Step 3: Heat some oil in another large nonstick skillet. Then, combine the cloves, bay leaf, ginger paste, green chile paste, garlic paste, and cumin seeds in a mixing bowl. Saute for a few minutes on medium heat before adding the onions. Allow the onions to simmer for around 2 minutes before adding the tomatoes and cooking for another 2 minutes on medium heat.


After adding the mushrooms and cooking for 1-2 minutes on medium heat, add the spinach combination, chili powder, garam masala, dried fenugreek leaves, coriander seeds, cumin seeds, and salt. Mix all ingredients together and simmer for around 2-3 minutes on a medium burner.


By now, the mixture should have become a pale green tint. Pour in some fresh cream and heat for one minute, stirring occasionally.


Step 4: When the timer goes off, serve hot with rice or toast.

“As a Indian, I’ve eaten this dish several times back home in India. But, I’ve never made it for my kids and I don’t think they are gonna like it but I will still try it out. maybe I will avoid the spices cuz I don’t know for what reason but my kids hates spices (can you believe that?) and perphaps I’d use a few substitutes here and there..just to please them.” -From Vijaya
