Spinach 2 ways - Palak Ki Chutney and in Palak aur Hari Mirch Ki Poori

Hello friends,


When Nupur announced this edition of Blog Bites # 7, I really felt like I could be the Iron Chef...lol. So, no need to say, these recipes go to this Iron Chef event.


I am a die hard fan of the food network show "Iron Chef", so I was excited to try it out. So, the ingredient, I chose was Palak (Spinach), which I know not gets used much sometimes in our regular food. But, I am a big leaf eater (can't you say, because I am a vegetarian), anyways. I wanted to try something that I had not tried before or I wanted to badly. Of course, as you all know I have lots (when I say lots, I literally mean lots) of bookmarked recipes, so I wanted to give this a try.






The first one is from my dearest blogger friend Kiran of Sumadhura called Palak Ki Chutney (Spicy Spinach Chutney). My mom makes it really well, but I had never tried it myself. So, it was a treat for myself and what a delicious chutney. I could not stop eating it. I think I ate about 1/4 cup of chutney just by itself.... lol and then some more in warm rice with little oil and I was on ninth cloud. Thank you so much Kiran for such wonderful and mouth watering recipe.




The second one is from a really young blogger Sanjana (I admire as she juggles her studies and cooking both) of KO Rasoi called Palak aur Hari Mirch Ki Poori (Spinach and Green Chili Pooris or Fried Bread). My son loved these green pooris and guess what Sanjana, I did make chhole to go along with it.  Loved the combo, thanks for such a delicious recipe.


Please enjoy the pictures on my blog, but visit their blogs for delicious recipes as I have used it as it is.


That's all for now. Take care till next post.

Priya said...

Great recipes,priya...i wish to try each and every recipe from ur blog..most sounds healthy and innovative...and this poori,omg,i luv it..

Sanjana said...

Hey Priya! Glad you liked the poori recipe. Did you use 1 cup of fresh spinach leaves (uncooked) or 1 cup of wilted/cooked spinach? That may be why yours may have turned out a little darker. Although, I think the ones you have made here look really delicious! Next time I will try adding a little more spinach. Great job!
