Ingredients :

  • 2 Packs fresh baby spinach.
  • 5 cloves of chopped garlic.
  • 1 small chopped bell peppers.
  • 2 tbsp oil.
  • 1/4 tsp panch phoron.
  • 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper if you like it spicier.
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder.
  • Salt to taste.

Instructions :

  1. Heat oil in a frying pan. Turn the heat to medium-low and then add panch-phoron and red pepper. Fry for a few seconds. 

  2. Add the chopped garlic and bell peppers into it and turn the heat to medium. Sauté them for a minute (don't wait for garlic to become golden brown).

  3. Add the baby spinach and toss it with salt and turmeric. Then cover the pan for 3 minutes. Cook until all the spinach is wilted. 

  4. Uncover the pan and cook for another minute. Turn off the heat and serve with some basmati rice.

Notes :

Panch-phoron is a blend of five spices. It literally means "five spices" - cumin, brown mustard, fenugreek, nigella, and fennel.
