Using Spinach in Cooking
I use Spinach a lot in my cooking. Our favourite is Palak Paneer(Indian Cottage Cheese in Spinach based gravy) and Kale Spinach Saag with Paneer koftas, that we relish with chapatis or homemade Naan. Another favourite is Lehsuni Dal Palak where I cook Spinach with Moong Lentils that my kids like to have with steamed rice or jeera rice.
Few other favourites are Palak aur Kabuli Chane ka Pulao(Spinach and Chickpeas Rice Pulao),
Rajma Palak Tikki(Cutlets) that you can also use like patty for burgers and sandwiches.
You can also use in making pestos, creamy pasta sauce and many other ways. Chole Palak or Rajma Palak, adding it in smoothies are another delicious way to add Spinach in our daily diets.
Did you know you can sneak in Spinach in your kids' favorite brownies . Check out my Kale Brownies. The recipe has Kale sneaked in but you can always substitute Spinach if Kale is not available at your place (that I do many times 🙂 )!

Avoid using All purpose Flour. Though it adds softness to breads and other baking goodies, but it has no nutritional value.
Add pureed Spinach while kneading the dough. You can blanch Spinach that I do or add pureed raw Spinach.
With salt and oil and another ingredient that I add is Ajwain Seeds or Caraway Seeds which is optional.
You can use any good plant based oil like Olive Oil/ Canola Oil or Rice Bran Oil.
