Spinach/Palak Vegetable Gravy

Spinach/Palak is one of the very common greens used around the world. It is rich in Vitamin A. Also it is rich in calcium, iron and protein. Here I used to find spinach a lot more than other greens. So I try lot of recipes with spinach. I made this vegetable spinach combination as a side dish for chapathis. I tastes really very good and even kids who hesitate to eat greens will taste this for sure.

My daughter will taste greens only in paste form. If I make sabzi kind of greens recipe, she will not eat it. So most of the time, I make greens in paste  form (Keerai Kadaisal). Just mix this kadaisal with white rice and give the kids. They will love it and also its very healthy.


Palak/Spinach - 2 cups
Mixed Vegetables - 1 cup
Onion - 1 (finely chopped)
Tomato - 1 (chopped)
Green Chilli -  2 (slitted)
Ginger garlic paste - 1 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
Chilli powder - 1 tsp
Dhania/Corriander powder - 2 tsp
Cumin - 1 tsp
Salt - to taste
Oil - 2 tbsp
Butter/Ghee - 1 tbsp


a) Grind the palak and make a paste of it.
b) Take any vegetables of your choice and cut to equal size.


1) Heat a pan and add oil. Add cumin seeds and onion.

2) Saute it well and add ginger garlic paste. Saute it until you get rid of the raw smell and add tomatoes, green chillies.

3) Saute it well and add the cut vegetbales.

4) Also add the dry powders.

5) Mix well and add water. Let the vegetables become tender.

6) Once the vegetables are cooked, add the palak paste.

7) Mix it well with the vegetables and cook for another 3 to 4 minutes.

8) Finally add the butter/ghee.

Mouthwatering and healthy palak vegetable gravy is ready to taste.
