veg gravy recipes
It is a wonderful gravy which is a best combination for flat breads like roti/poori or pulkas..



WISH YOU ALL HAPPY MAKARA SANKRANTI FRIENDS.....

The sad part  of here is we don`t have many leafy veggies except spinach n amranthus leaves...And those two also can find in some particular season of the year..Whenever i found spinach never miss to buy..Instead of simple stir fry decided to cook some gravy and searched out in web.....So,Finally i got this recipe from  a news paper and the ings are super simple... It`s reall dead easy to make and tastes good too......It goes well in the parties also....So,Next time when you buy spinach just remember this and give  a try..i tried it and i served this with rice n rotis too...

Mash spinach dal lightly and heat a kadai with oil.....

Add in mashed Spinach+dal,sweet corn,chilli powder,salt and garam masala.Cook this for 3 minutes..

Now add cream and off flame after 2 minutes..

MY NOTES

Use less chilli powder if you want...

Adding cream is the important pat of this gravy....
