Hello Friends…how are you all..

How was your Holi!!(Indian festival of colors)…well for me it was more of a family affair with lotsss of food, sweets & festivity around…So after all that carbs & fats, I really want something which is less oily & healthy. So I decided upon green leafy veggie Spinach.

Spinach is low in fat & is nutritional powerhouse. It has almost everything that our body needs. It is very versatile veggie & can be used in salads, soups, curries, sandwiches etc. Today’s recipe is one such versatile dish which can be eaten as side dish or with bread or can be spead over toast. I like to eat it with cheese & grilled multigrain bread toast. If your are calories cautious, you can skip adding cheese to it.
