Spinach and Spring Onion Curry

Deep-Green Spinach Spring Onion Side Dish

Spinach is a good source of nutrients. It is rich in calcium, vitamin A, vitamin K, manganese, copper, iron, dietary fiber, magnesium, folate, vitamin C, etc.

Spring onions are low in sodium and very low in saturated fat and cholesterol. It is also a good source of dietary fiber and vitamins.

This curry is very healthy due to the many nutrient-rich veggies in it. To make this curry deep green, cook the veggies in a open pan. Covering the pan may make the curry less green.

Serve this simple, yummy curry with flat breads, roti, chapati, or plain rice.

Now, let me share the detailed recipe with you.

      Thanks for your advice. Yeah, adding black eyed peas can be a great idea. But, this curry tastes yummy in its own way even without that. Try this simple curry once.

      Looks quite lovely. I very much like to eat something just so, but I tend to add some black eye'd peas into the mix.

      Dadgummit, just realized New Year's Eve is near, and I was at the grocery yesterday, and failed to purchase black eye'd peas.

      Oh, and if you love red pepper sauces, as I do, that dish of yours takes to things like Tabasco, or milder things like Tapatio, like butter takes to bread! :)

      Cheers!
