BM #97 Week 2 Day 2 -

When I started making a list of Vegan dishes to post for this week, I realized many of the everyday dishes I make are vegan and also qualify for No onion No garlic as well.

I rely on this super quick and easy saute when I have to quickly make a side dish. I usually stock the peanut powder in my pantry which makes this super quick. I sometimes use frozen spinach if that is all I have in my refrigerator. I love to top the saute with more roasted and crushed peanuts for an extra crunch but that is totally optional. 

Ingredients - 

Spinach chopped 2-3 cups
Salt, Turmeric, Red Chili Powder as needed
Seasoning (Oil 2 tsp, Chana Dal 1 tsp, Urad Dal 1 tsp, Mustard Seeds 1/2 tsp, Curry leaves few)
Roast and Grind - 
Peanuts handful
Sesame Seeds 2 tsp
Coriander seeds 1 tsp
Cumin seeds 1/2 tsp

Method Of Preparation -

Prepare the peanut powder by roasting all the ingredients listed under 'Roast and Grind' and powder them. Set aside.

In a heated pan, add oil and the rest of the seasoning ingredients. 

After the mustard seeds pop and the dals are golden brown, add the chopped spinach.

Saute for a couple of minutes until the spinach wilts. Add in turmeric, salt, red chili powder and the peanut powder.

Mix and remove from heat.

Serve it with rice or roti or millets.


Preparation Time 15 minutes
Serves 2-3

  2. You are right, most of our everyday dishes fall under Vegan category. And naturally gluten free if you stick with rice. I like the peanut powder, I can imagine the flavor it imparts.

  3. The spinch stir fry is such an easy dish but so nutritious. The addition of peanut will add a nice flavor to it.

  4. The spinach greens must have tasted awesome with those peanuts , love this version and would pass on the recipe to my son who is a spinach freak !
