Hai Guys..Its middle of the week and only two more days for weekend..I am feeling the tiredness already..I really want to take rest now but still have to wait for two more days...This weekend is going to be a long one for me...

So what do you need in the middle of a tiring weekend...... Something so quick and full of healthy vitamins and minerals which keep you going for the next two days..

So here I deliver Spinach which is combined with chickpeas...I know it is a fully nutritional meal..I made it entirely indian style because I am a Indian..

I am really too lazy to describe this dish so straightaway to the recipe...
