Palak-Tamatar Ki Subzi

This is my favorite brunch on a lazy weekend morning, Palak-Tamatar Ki Subzi with warm Parathas. Hmmm, comforting!

Palak-Tamatar Ki Subzi / Spinach in Tomato-Onion Gravy

The base I use for this spinach curry is a simple tomato-onion gravy. And as fresh spinach is not very easily available all the time, I usually get many frozen spinach boxes, as it will be much easier for me to quickly prepare any curry using these. You all can however use fresh spinach if you have assess to it, I do not get to see many fresh desi greens here. You can enjoy this curry along with rice too, but I always prefer to have it along with my warm parathas. You will love and enjoy it.

Palak-Tamatar Ki Subzi / Spinach in Tomato-Onion Gravy


Canola Oil – 2 tbsp
Yellow Onions – 2, medium, chopped fine
Ginger-Garlic Paste – 1 tsp
Ripe Red Tomatoes – 2, medium, chopped
Red Chilli Powder – 1 1/3 tsp
Salt – 1 tsp
Fresh/Frozen Chopped Spinach – 300 gms


-Pour oil into a small sized saucepan on medium heat and as soon it gets hot, throw in the chopped onions. -Stir fry them till they light brown in colour, then add ginger garlic paste to it. Saute the mixture for about 2 minutes.
-Add the chopped tomatoes and a cup of water, mix it well. Then close the lid of the saucepan and let it cook for about 5-8 minutes till the tomatoes are all mushy. Keep stirring it occasionally just to keep a check if it isnt drying up or getting burnt.
-Add the frozen thawed spinach and again close the lid. Keep stirring the mixture every now and then, till the Spinach is nicely mixed with the Tomato-Onion mixture.
-Sprinkle Red Chilli powder and Salt. Let it cook on low heat. You can add a little more water if needed. Once Done, serve hot with Warm Parathas. Enjoy.

And while having this brunch, you can have a look at the New Hyderabad International Airport soon to be opened, probably by next month at Shamshabad. Its beautiful and i’m proud of it.
