I need a bigger fridge. And I definitely need a bigger freezer. I seem to make double batches of just about everything so that I can save time another day. I seem to chop, grate, puree and pressure cook wholesale. I don’t cook and freeze full meals. I like to eat fresh meals but I’m not against freezing entire meals. It’s just that my freezer is already bursting at its seams and I feel sorry for it at times.
But there are some things that I cannot bring myself to do on a regular basis. Like clean spinach. That is something I do in bulk. And then dishing out something like this to eat with chapattis is not tough at all. In fact, I cook and puree the spinach before freezing it.
1 bunch Spinach, cooked and pureed
1 Onion, ground to a fine paste
2 tbsp Tomato Puree
1 tsp Green Chilli Paste
1 tsp Ginger Paste
1 tsp Garlic Paste
1/4 tsp Turmeric Powder
1/4 tsp Chilli Powder
1 tsp Oil
Salt to taste
Heat the oil and fry the onion paste for a few minutes. Add the ginger, chilli and garlic pastes and fry for a minute. Add the tomato puree, salt, chilli and turmeric powder and fry for a couple of minutes before adding the spinach puree. Bring the mixture to a boil. Simmer for 4-5 minutes.
At one point, I'd eaten this with rice too. But it tastes best with chapattis and bread. Let me know how you like it.
