Palak(Spinach) Tambli

Ingredients:
1/2 bunch of baby Spinach / Ele Palak soppu
1/2 - 3/4 cup grated Coconut
2 - 3 Black Peppers / Kaalu Menasu
4 - 5 Cumin seeds
1 Green Chilly
1.5 - 2 cups Buttermilk / Majjige
Salt to taste
1 tsp Mustard Seeds
2 - 3 Curry leaves
2 broken Red Chillies
1 tsp Ghee

Recipe:
Wash the baby spinach leaves and keep them aside. Cut the green chilly into two pieces.

Put 1/2 tsp ghee in a thick bottomed vessel and heat. Add cumin seeds, black peppers, green chilly and fry them for few seconds. Add spinach leaves and fry them for about 3-4 mins in medium flame.

Grind grated coconut, fried spinach leaves into smooth paste by adding sufficient amount of water. (If it is frozen coconut, use hot water while grinding.) Transfer this ground coconut to a vessel. Add buttermilk, salt to the same vessel and mix them well. (If it is yogurt/curd, put it in a mixer for few seconds before adding it to tambli.)
Put mustard seeds, broken red chillies and 1/2 tsp ghee in a pan. Once it starts spluttering, add curry leaves and then add it to Tambli. It goes well with rice.
