Spinach Stir-fry

Cheera Mezhukkupuratti
Here is a simple and tasty recipe to make spinach. I’m sure your kids will love it! In this recipe, I have used the variety called cheera/arakeerai . Here in Bangalore, there is a boy who brings greens of all varieties on his bicycle to my house. He comes everyday around 8 a.m calling loudly ‘soppu’ which means greens in Kannada. Thank God, I get fresh greens of my choice right at my door step!

What you need:

Spinach -4 bunches
Onion -1 chopped
Chilly powder -1 tsp
Turmeric powder -1\4 tsp
Maggi chicken/veg taste maker cube -1
Salt -taste
Oil -2 tbsp


Clean, wash and cut the spinach. Heat oil in a large pan. Saute onions for a minute. Add chilly powder and turmeric powder. Mix and then add the spinach. Also add the crushed chicken taste maker and salt (add very little as the taste maker contains salt). Keep covered and cook on a low heat. Open the lid and stir occasionally. Adjust the salt and fry uncovered for a minute. Delicious spinach stir-fry is ready!
