Dry red chilli – 1 or 2 (optional)

Substitute for dry chilli – Green chilli 1 or 2

Carrot – Grated (optional)

Salt and pepper – as per taste

Method :

Prepare all your ingredients to make spinach stir fry. Chop onion and keep aside. If possible use shallots for this recipe. I don’t have shallots on that day so used yellow onion. Crush the garlic along with skin in mortar and pestle and keep aside.


Heat wok/kadai add oil or spray oil. Add mustard seeds and let it splutter. Let it splutter completely before adding next ingredients. This is very important.


Add urad dal and let it brown a little. Then add cumin seeds and crackle.


Add crushed garlic along with skin.


Add dry red chilli or green chilli and saute well. Only spice we using in this recipe is chilli so use as per your taste. Don’t let this to burn. Cook everything in medium/low flame. Let it get lightly brown.


Then add chopped onion/shallots and saute until translucent.


Then add spinach and mix everything well.


Add grated carrot if using. Add salt, pepper(optional) and give a stir.


Mix well and sprinkle some water (Very little) Cover and cook for few minutes. Cook until water evaporates.


Very quick and tasty and healthy spinach stir fry is ready 🙂


Served it with white rice and egg masala 🙂
