I love Indian food and also cook a lot of it as well.
This dish exactly as is , is very delicious. If you don't enjoy very hot food , you may consider using only 1 pepper as they are large. I enjoyed this with Roti and makes a lovely lunch or light meaL.
Excellent. I substituted one Habanero pepper and two Serrano peppers, sautéed in a little ghee. Also added fresh portabella mushrooms. Served it with Allrecipes Bhagari Jhinga, Indian Stir fried shrimp in cream sauce and Allrecipes Basmati rice.
I was a little afraid to try this, spinach mush didn't sound too appealing. But I needed a vegetable recipe to go with some Indian potatoes I was making for a vegetarian dinner so thought I would brave it. Wow this is wonderful! The only changes I made were to use kale instead of mustard greens, since the grocery didn't have them. I also used fresh ginger and garlic in place of the paste, but otherwise I stuck to the recipe as written. If you like spinach, this is a terrific side dish. Be sure to use real ghee; you can tell the difference. The tomatoes give the dish a light tanginess that perfectly offsets any bitterness. I highly recommend this with any Indian meal. Thanks for a lovely recipe!
Delicious! Served this with basmati rice along with Tandoori chicken grilled on a Big Green Egg. Used the greens from my garden: equal parts chard, spinach, arugula, and kale. I doubled the cumin, tomato, and added about 1/2 tsp. of garam masala.
I served this recipe with aloo chaat, roti, and a side of raw tomato as a hearty brunch for myself and my children. I subtracted the red chilies to make the recipe kid friendly. I cleaned the kitchen while everyone ate and I kept peeking around the corner only to continuously hear 'mmmm' noises from the dining room table, which always signifies a winner recipe! To my surprise my children ate every bite! Great recipe.
