very good dish..my kids started to like spinach cause of this particular dish..very easy..though I used bottled ginger/garlic..nd tomato paste for the tomatoes..very easy..nd quick!!
Great recipe. I used Collard instead of spinach. Turned out great too! Thanks!
Yum! Try serving with basmati rice cooked with lemon juice and grainy mustard.
Superb recipe!!! It turned out excellent and is really easy to make.The cardamom lends a great aroma and goes well with the spinach
I have made this recipe about ten times now. It has become the family favorite. Flavorful and aromatic to say the least. I am back to print another copy since the last one has been taited with spinach sap.
This was truly delicious. Good enough to make the effort to find the recipe again to rate it, which is a rarity.
very simple to make, delicious and foolproof. i used low-fat cream instead of milk and only 1 tbsp of oil all in all and no butter -- the dish still turned out to be amazingly tasty
Very good! I substituted cream for milk and had to add more salt to taste, and it turned out very well.
