Spicy Spinach ( Palak) stir fry with Raw mango . Serve with Phulka or Steamed rice and Vegetable Raita( Vegetables with Yogurt)
For today’s dinner I prepared simple Spinach stir fry and served with Phulka and Vegetable raita ( Vegetables with Yogurt). It is not Spicy . Kid friendly recipe. What I like about this recipe is we can add lot of greens ( More than half of the spinach box ) . I added a special Ingredient at the end because i want it different from regular stir fry. I squeeze juice of lime at the end in all my Stir fry Vegetables . For a change instead of Lime juice I added Grated raw mango as mangoes are in Season. Add little and if you like the taste add little more. I added 1/2 cup grated raw mango. Instead adding half cup Chickpea flour I added the Combination of Chickpea flour and Rice flour. So the stir fry will be little Crispy once you finish the Cooking. Once you add chopped Spinach , uncover and Cook so it won’t be Mushy . Add lot of Onions as Spinach will wilt and not sufficient for Whole family . Here is a Simple recipe with few and every day Ingredients.
