    Nice and simple recipe…
    I usually do this 2 ways 1 ur recipe and other version is
    Add handfull of urad dal along with cumin seeds and fry for a 2-3 mins and use green chillis instead of powder. Gives that extra crunch with urad dal.fry the palak till all the water ozzes out.

    Have been visiting quite a few ‘Indian’ cuisine Blogs. Most seem pretentious…! Sailu, your blog is good. Goes straight to the heart. I assume that’s because it comes straight from your heart. Awesome photographs too.

    I was craving this vepudu badly today. So close to my mom’s version, minus the methi pwd. I tried your version with the methi pwd, but couldn’t tell that there was any. Perhaps because there’s a bunch of other spices that really made the dish, and the garlic of course!
