Spinach Bhaji (4)

Spinach BhajiThis is a recipe for spinach that i return to often. Its from Das Sreedharans ” Fresh Flavours of India” (1999). Das has a small chain of restaurants in London . The first opened in Stoke Newington Church Street in the nineties  and is called Rasa. This restaurant is solely vegatarian and has a fairly extensive range of dishes from Southern India. For those who prefer meat and fish there is another branch of the chain almost opposite called Rasa Travancore. Both are recommended if you are visiting the area.

Serve this dish as a side dish, or with a naan bread.

Southern Indian Spinach Curry (4)

On a bit of a roll with spinach recipes at the moment. It is one of my favourite vegetables and very good for you . You could use chard as an alternative, but the stems will need to be cooked for longer than the leaves. Serve as part of a meal alongside other Indian dishes.
