Spicy Spinach with Cashew nuts

Spinach leaves contain considerable amount of calcium. Spinach, especially raw, is a very good source of folic acid (vitamin B9). Not only that, spinach leaves is rich in vitamin C and E, which are antioxidants. These are supposed to lower risks of heart disease, stroke and cancer. The high amount of vitamin A in spinach may protect against eye degeneration. The potassium helps prevent and regulate high blood pressure. Today I want to combine this vitamin rich spinach with extra cashew’s richness.

Spinach, Onion, roasted cashews


Spinach – 1 big bunch
Cashews – 15 – 20
Onion – 1 sliced length wise
Ginger + Garlic paste – 1 tsp
Green chili paste – 2 tsp


Take fresh spinach, wash and chop it.

Dry roast the cashew nuts and grind them into fairly smooth powder and keep it aside.

Heat a deep pan with 1 tbsp of oil and when it is hot, add ginger garlic paste, green chili paste, onion slices, salt and sauté them until onion becomes tender.

Now add the spinach and fry for a minute and close the lid. No need to add water to cook greens. Stir in between until every thing is almost done.

Add the cashew nut powder, mix together and remove from the fire.

The spinach with extra nutty flavor.
