A Very Easy-to-Make Spinach Curry in Minutes


A Very Easy-to-Make Spinach Curry in Minutes

Table of Contents


  • 1lb bag of spinach or 2 medium sized fresh spinach bunch
  • Methi or Fenugreek (found at most Indian grocers and sometimes in the ethnic section at No frills)
  • Turmeric powder (2 teaspoons), red chili powder (2 teaspoons) and salt (to taste)
  • 2 chopped fresh tomatoes (with the best food chopper)
  • 1 whole chopped onion¬†(Here are some great onion choppers for you!)
  • 1 lemon or lemon juice
  • Oil (your choice – vegetable or sunflower works well)


  1. Wash spinach under cold running water… and break the spinach in to small pieces as desired… I just mesh them up. I also dry them in a salad spinner before chopping with a food chopper.
  2. Heat oil for about 2 – 3 minutes on medium heat and than add the methi or fenugreek spice
  3. Mix in onions and fry in a skillet or electric wok till light golden or yellow
  4. Add the tomatoes to the mix and turmeric, chili powder and salt. Mix well and mash the paste.
  5. Add the spinach and mix well… let cook for about 5 minutes than add lemon to taste
  6. Let stand for about 10-15 minutes for juices to extract… (That will be the curry)
  7. Serve on top of rice or with bread

Serve with chicken breast with the following spices.

Step 1: Wash chicken breast

Step 2: Add salt, chili, ginger and garlic paste, lemon and paprika (Here are some great garlic presses for you!)

step 3: Let it sit for 2 hours and barbeque it on the grill or in the oven
