Potato Spinach Recipe

The health benefits of spinach are numerous and its ability to help prevent diseases is well known. Spinach is an excellent source of beta-carotene, a powerful disease-fighting antioxidant. It is a rich source of Vitamins C, A, minerals and iron. It can be called the Super food. Combined with the versatile potato, it is a fantastic side dish for rice or roti (Indian flat bread). This is a very simple and easy curry which can be done in a few minutes time. Enjoy the health benefits of spinach by preparing this easy and simple Spinach Potato Curry (dry sabzi).

  54. padu,
    can u tell me using vinegar(aciticacid)for fried rice is healthy or we should use fruit vinegar
    but of course it is very expensive and have doubt weather will taste good or not please help me

    ReplyDelete
  55. Vinegar is not that healthy.I use only white vinegar for fried rice. We will be adding very less for fried rice. If you do not like it you can omit it.
