White beans with palak gravy

A spicy gravy that is sure to be a good additition to chapathi sides. Its kinda little creamy and a little spicy to kindle up taste buds. I love this as it is a good change from the regular chole or rajma or even plain white beans curry.

Serves... 4 ppl 
Serve option... Hot rice or chapathis

This is what u'll need....

White/Canilineni beans 1/2 cup uncooked or 1 small can cooked
Spinach 1/4 bundle
Onion 1 small
Tomato 1 small
Gg paste 1 tspn
Cumin seeds 1 tspn
Red chilli powder 1 tspn
Cumin powder 1 tspn
Coriander powder 1 tspn
Garam masala 1 tspn
Salt to taste
Oil 1 tbspn
Milk 1/4 cup(optional)

Here is the stir....
  • Heat oil in a pan and add jeera to it
  • Chop onions and fry them in oil till translucent
  • Spoon in gg paste and cook till it loses its raw flavor
  • Toss in chopped tomatoes, red chilli powder, cumin powder, coriander powder and salt. Stir well and cook covered on medium high for 5 mins. Check if it needs a little water
  • Mix in chopped spinach and cook till spinach is 3/4th done(around 5 mins)
  • Put the cooked beans into the pan with half a cup of water(depends on how thick you want it) and cook for 7-8 mins
  • Pour milk and cook for a minute or two
