Spinach Masiyal (With Coconut Milk)

I tried out usual spinach masiyal by using coconut milk and tempered the spices with coconut oil, this spinach masiyal tastes fabulous and everyone at home loved the coconut flavour in this spinach masiyal, acutally i got this idea of making out spinach masiyal coz of some leftover thick coconut milk which i prepared for making some kurmas were laying in fridge and i tried adding those leftover coconut milk while cooking the spinach leaves instead of cooking the spinach leaves just with water.....Different masiyal which tastes too delicious,truly this coconut milk spinach masiyal tastes too yummy and healthy to enjoy with any spicy side dish.


2cups Spinach leaves (chopped)
1cup Thick coconut milk
1/2cup Water
6nos Garlic cloves
1tsp Mustard seeds+urad dal or Vadagam
3nos Dry red chillies(broken)
Salt
1tbsp Coconut Oil

Bring boil the coconut milk and water together, add the spinach leaves and cook in medium flame until the spinach leaves get cooked...Meawhile crush the garlic cloves,keep aside..,heat the coconut oil, let splutters the mustard seeds, urad dal..add the dry red chillies and fry until they turns brown, finally add the crushed garlic and fry for few minutes, put of the stove...Mash the cooked spinach leaves with a hand blender along with the tempered spices and garlic with enough salt..

Serve along with rice and any side dish..

Aha.. Just looks so inviting Priya.. And ya, with coconut oil tempering it tastes and smells like heaven.. Btw, is it "palak" or our regular keerai variety? I always get confused because some people call even our normal keerai's as spinach!! Hope I dont sound silly ;)

சூப்பர்ப் கீரை மசியல்...எங்க மாமியாரும் கூட இதே மாதிரி தான் கீரை மசியலினை செய்வாங்க...அவங்க கீரை மட்டும் இல்லை...சில சமயம் உப்புமாவிலும் கூட இப்படி தான் தேங்காய் பால் + தேங்காய் எண்ணெயில் தாளிப்பது செய்வாங்க...எப்பவாது அப்படி சாப்பிட்டால் நன்றாக தான் இருக்கும்....

I have tried it with grated coconut (to grind with spinach) - I will try this method too. Thank you for sharing the recipe.

@Deepa, do add half a tsp of sugar while cooking ur greens, it will retain the green colour..
