Andhra Keerai Masiyal / Andhra Style Pureed Spinach


When i was pregnant, one of the dish which i ate most of the time is spinach masiyal. My mom made it for me daily, she insisted me to eat it, because it is so healthy and full of iron. 

But i got bored with this lately. I just want something spicy and with lots of flavour. Hubby dear got me a recipe book which has recipes made with spinach. I found this recipe in that book and tried it immediately. And it was delicious. So here you go to the recipe.
