Spinach Pulav


by: Aarthi

I tried out Homemade Bounty Chocolate and it was a huge blast. It tasted more or less like real Bounty Chocolate. I will post up the recipe. In todays dish I am going to be using the most underestimated veggie “SPINACH.” I am going to take the everyday humble spinach and turn it into exotic dish, this recipe is one example for that. The magic of this dish lies in the lovely green masala that we prepare. This is really a simple yet tasty pulav.
