Fry for a minute or two, add the chopped spinach and a pinch of sugar.

Mix everything together and cook for 3 minutes.

Add salt,coconut give a quick stir and switch off the stove.

Healthy and yummy spinach stir fry is ready! It tastes grate with roti's and rice. You can mix this with hot white rice, n that tastes awesome! :P

  • Adding sugar helps to keep the greens retain their color.
  • Greens get cooked so fast, so don't over cook. I always cook the greens uncovered and exactly for 3 minutes. :)
  • Spinach may look more in quantity initially, but they shrink so fast, so add the salt at the end.
  • You can add cooked moong dhal or add minced garlic clove with this stir fry. Of all, this is the easy n fast method. If I get cleaned n washed spinach leaves, I don't even chop the leaves,just add them after a quick rinse!;)
  • Adding fresh coconut enhances taste, and its more healthier than frying the coconut.So be sure to add the coconut after you put off the stove.
