This is another one recipe which is passed to me by my mum..She make this often( atleast once a week ), she mixes this with hot steaming rice along with ghee(ofcourse, we add ghee in everything) and put it in our lunch boxes. Now I am following the same tradition and packing this in my hubby’s lunch box, luckily he liked it a lot.
This is like a doddle to make, The main thing about this is its simplicity and you can taste everybit of it greeny freshness. I hope you will love it and tell me how it turned out for you.
Spinach – 1 bunch ( I used Arai Keerai) roughly chopped
Garlic – 4 cloves
Green Chilli – 2 chopped
Water – 1/2 cup
Salt to taste
Ghee – 3 tblspn
Shallots / Sambar Onion – 5 chopped finely
Take water in a sauce pan. Add garlic and green chillies in it.

Now remove them from heat and let them cool down.
Take it in a blender and make into a fine puree.
