Palak bhaji

This is very simple recipe for spinach sabji. I make this when I want to eat something healthy and don't want to take lot of effort.
This goes well with rice or chapati with onion salad.

Spinach: 400gms
Tomato: 1 large
Garlic: 2 cloves
Mustard seeds: 1 tea spoon
Asafoetida: 1 pinch
Turmeric: 1 tea spoon
Coriander and cumin powder: 1 table spoon
Red chili powder: 1-2 tea spoon
Oil: 1 table spoon
Salt to taste.

Wash and dry spinach. Rough chop it. Peel garlic and fine chop it. Wash and fine chop tomatoes.
Heat the pan, add oil and allow it to get hot. Add mustard seeds. Once it start to splutter add asafoetida.
Add garlic and cook for 30 seconds and Add tomato and cook for 2 minutes.
Add spinach. Spinach will leave lot of water so do not add any extra water. Stir it for 3-4 minutes and you will see leaves will start to cook. Add all the spices. Add salt right at the end when spinach is almost cooked.
After 3-4 minutes spinach will be ready to serve. You can add pinch of garam masala if you wish.
Serve hot with chapati or rice and choice or pickle or salad.
