Palak Pacchadi is yet another way to consume these greens. We are all Palak fans at home and so Palak cooked in any form is favored. When Jaya (my sis) and her family were with us a few days back, she prepared this and we all relished it. This was one of the recipes which I usually don't prepare too often and that she prepares all too often! So here is how she prepared for us..




Ingredients -


Palak / Spinach 2 cups
Green Chillies 5-6 (or as per taste)
Tamarind juice 2 Tbsp
Sugar/Jaggery 1 tsp
Salt as per taste
Seasoning (Oil 2 tsp, Chana Dal 1 Tbsp, Urad Dal 2 Tbsp, Mustard Seeds 1 tsp, Fenugreek Seeds (Menthi seeds) a pinch, Jeera 1/2 tsp, Red Chillies 1-2, Hing a couple pinches)


Updated - Add some sauteed Onions in the end for an extra crunch!


Method Of Preparation - 


In a heated sauce pan, add oil and the rest of the seasoning. After the mustard seeds crackle and the rest of the dals are brown, add green chillies and saute.


Add the cleaned, washed Palak and let it wilt.


Upon cooling, make a coarse paste adding salt, sugar and tamarind juice as per taste.


This chutney is very healthy and super tasty with rice! Also can add curd to make raitha too!

  15. This is such a great way of adding spinach to your food. And, this way, you also eat large quantities of leaves per person than otherwise. I simply love this pachhadi :)
