  1. This recipe is very easy to prepare I guess, at least it seems so while reading the recipe. By make it spicy, it works the best for spicy food lovers.
    Now I have ordered all the ingredients required for this in an online supermarket and will try it out.
    Thanks for this recipe.

    1. Hi Lakshmi, thank you for your comments. Even I am spicy food lover like you. Same thought came in my mind while preparing this recipe. But believe me, this gives you altogether a different taste of Spinach curry. At least I would suggest give it a try without altering recipe once and then give me reply how it tasted.
