How to make Lassooni Palak (Garlic Spinach)

Lassooni Palak / Garlic Spinach dish is probably a generic dish which is used in many cuisines. For me, the first time I tried it, was at an Italian restaurant in Gran Canaria. It was served with a toasted baguette which was sliced – you were to get a spoonful of spinach and spread it on top of the bread – to enjoy as a starter with drink. This version of lassooni palak is more Indian oriented – it tasted pretty much like the Sindhi Palak recipe but much more bitter.

  3. Add the garam masala, jeera and dhaniya powder – mix well.
  4. Add the red chilli powder.

  6. Optional – I like my spinach to have a tangy taste – this is usually achieved by adding tomatoes – I did not have them this time – so I added some aamchoor. (unripened mango powder)

To be honest, this dish doesnt really have much variation when compared to the sindhi palak – it just has loads of garlic – hence the name.
