Spinach With ChickPeas

Spinach is healhty everyone knows it ,it has calcium ,vitamin C and lot of goodness.How to make it extra healthy .Normally i use to make add paneer to my spinach ,but want to try something little more healthier that is not contributing to something that will make me fat and it should be something that i can eat a lot without guilt.So i came up with this recipe .By adding Garbonzo we get to have some extra proteins and all goodness from having lentils and yummy too.Once i tried this recipe now a days its always spinach is accompanied with garbanzo at my home and i am making it more often too.So lets look into the recipe.


Spinach Leaves - 5 cup
Garbonzo / Chick Pea - 1 cup cooked
Garlic - 1 small size pod
Green Chillies - 1 to 2
Water - 1/4 cup
Oil- 1 tsp
Mustard Seeds - 1 tbsp
Curry leaf - 5


Take cleaned spinach along with garlic,chillies,salt and water and cook without covering with lid,till spinach is cooked along with garlic and chillies.
Don't cover spinach while cooking as spinach has volatile acids which needs to be escaped while cooking ,letting this volatile acids escape make the spinach stays light green.
Then blend this mixture to a fine puree by adding water if needed.

Take a pan add oil,once oil is hot add mustard seeds ,once they splutter add curry leaf then add chick peas and saute it a min then add spinach puree...add salt as needed and cover and cook till it bubbles and oil cooks spinach properly...this will take around 5 min...then transfer it to a serving container....This goes really well with hot rice and ghee...u can also add paneer to this spinach for palak paneer....
