Carrot, Onion and Spinach Gravy

Happy Independence Day:)
I tried a recipe in which I have used carrot, onion and spinach. These colourful vegetables have great nutritional values. The outcome was awesome. Hope you will also give it a try..
Enjoy the butter flavored spinach gravy with soft carrot cubes and crunchy onion slices.

What you need:
Spinach-1 bunch
Green chilly-3
Chopped onions-1/2 cup
Cumin seeds-1 teaspoon
Garlic cloves-3
Ginger-1/4th  inch
Coriander powder-1 teaspoon
Turmeric powder-a pinch
Salt-to taste
Butter-1 tablespoon
Oil-1 tablespoon

  1. Wash and chop the spinach. Peel and cut the carrots into small cubes.
  2. Take 1/4th cup of chopped onions, green chilly, chopped spinach, garlic cloves, cumin seeds, coriander powder, ginger, turmeric powder and salt into the mixer jar. Blend them into a smooth paste.
  3. Heat the pan or wok and add butter and oil. Lower the flame and add the ground paste. Stir it for 2-3 minutes and add the carrot cubes to it. Mix it well and add 1/2 a cup of water. 
  4. Cover with the lid and cook it for 5-6 minutes on a low flame. Once the gravy thickens, turn off the stove and transfer it into a serving bowl. Garnish with the  remaining chopped onions.
  5. Serve it with steamed rice or roti or poori. 
Note: You can also add a pinch of amchur powder to the gravy one minute before turning off the stove.
