Recipe of palak matar

I had this dish once in University canteen and fell in love with this preparation forever. Whenever there is abundance of spinach in my pantry I procure some green peas and make sure that I prepare this dish at least once during the Winter season for those fresh flavors together. The sweetness of green peas and the slight bitterness of spinach puree perfectly balances the flavors in the dish. It can be served with any flatbreads like roti, naans , kulcha, tandoori roti etc. The consistency of this dish is towards the drier side so I dont prefer serving with rice but it can definitely accompany dal and rice combo.

  1. 2 Bunches of spinach leaves
  2. 2 cups of boiled green peas
  3. 1 cup chopped onions
  4. 1 tbsp. ginger garlic paste
  5. 1 tsp cumin seeds

  7. 2 tbsp. vegetable oil
  8. 1 tsp garam masala
  9. 2 to 3 green chilies chopped
  10. Juice of 1 lemon
