Spinach /Palak Masiyal

Masiyal is a basic dish, which is eaten with kootu or even sambhar rice..just like I would say chutney.
Its a great side dish, which is simple with few ingredients and so very flavourful and dominantly of the spinach.

Spinach - 2 large bunches,
Green Chillies - 2,

To Temper:
Coconut oil - 1 teaspoon,
Mustard - 1/2 teaspoon,
Urad dal - teaspoon,
Red Chillies - 2.

Clean the Spinach with lot of water and remove dirt and sand.
Remove Stalks and pick the leaves.
Blanch Spinach leaves in hot water for a minute and remove from water.
Immediately drench in cold water, to retain the gorgeous green colour.
Squeeze the water completely from the spinach and grind with green chillies to fine paste(no need to add water while grinding).
Add Salt. Mix well.
Temper with the ingredients under the tempering table.
Enjoy with kootu sadam/rice or sambhar sadam/rice.
But I also like to mix it with hot rice and enjoy.
If you dont like coconut oil, you can use any oil normally you use.
But trust me coconut oil adds lots of flavour. Its worth a try.
