Spinach Thoran

I left my son at school and I was driving by, my eyes stopped at this lady with a large basket selling fresh spinach of all types and colours. I bought three bunches of green spinach and had it cooked in no time. It had been long since we've had some greens at home.

Spinach - 3 bunches
Onion - 1 large finely chopped
Garlic - 5-6 pods finely chopped
Green chilly - 1 finely chopped
Coconut grated - 3tbs
Salt to taste

Thoroughly wash the spinach in water to get rid of the dirt and sand particles. Finely chop the spinach or to speeden the process, put the leaves into a food processor and process in batches to get them chopped evenly. Saute the chopped onion, garlic and chilly till a fragrant aroma is released. The onions need not be browned at all. Tip in the spinach, add salt to taste. Cover and cook for about 5-7 minutes on low flame. Once the spinach is cooked, tip in the grated coconut, give it a good mix and take the spinach off the flame.


  1. Lovely click. A very nice dish.

    There is an award waiting for you in my blog :-)

  2. I envy you when you say you bought spinach from the lady on the road... I miss those road vendors (in India) so much here....
    that's a wonderful and simple way to enjoy fresh spinach, excellent dish!!
