  6. This was the dish I make quite often as we get only spinach and methi fresh here.
    I make it with green chillies instead of red, add couple of garlic pods, 1 tomato and corriander powder. I make it in pressure cooker as well and this is the only veg dish both my husband and son will eat without any complaints:))

  7. Thanks a bunch for your comments friends!

    @Girija, I never cook greens in pressure cooker! They get cooked in minutes, so why pressure cooking them-nu, I always cook any green on stove top for maximum 5 minutes only! :)

    Thanks for the comment Giri!
