Spinach has a high nutritional value and is extremely rich in antioxidants, especially when fresh, steamed, or quickly boiled. It is a rich source of vitamin A , vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin K, magnesium, manganese, folate, betaine, iron, vitamin B2, calcium,potassium, vitamin B6, folic acid, protein, phosphorus, zinc, niacin, selenium and omega-3 fatty acids. I usually prepare keerai masiyal with spinach and now I prepared simple stir fry with spinach. It tasted awesome and I hope you all like it too.

  • For pottukadalai powder, dry roast dhalia / pottukadalai until slightly golden brown color and crush it to a coarse powder. Adding roasted pottukadalai powder helps to reduce moisture in the spinach.
