Creamy Spinach Mushroom Sabzi
This is a creamy dish which can be had with rice,bread,tortillas or rotis.
I like to have it with 2 slices of bread on days when I want to diet.
3 cups spinach
1/2 green chilli
1/2 inch ginger
2-3 cloves of garlic
8 oz mushrooms chopped
1 tomato chopped
1/2 onion chopped

1/4 tsp mustard seeds
1/4 tsp urad dhal

2 garlic cloves finely chopped
salt to taste
3 tbsp red bell pepper chopped
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
1/4 tsp chilli powder
1/4 tsp garam masala powder
1/8 cup heavy cream
2 tbsp sour cream
1.Blanch the spinach in hot water for 5-10 mins.Save 1/2 cup of this water.

11.Add the mushrooms,cover and cook for 15 mins.
12.Add the Pureed Spinach mixture and cook in low flame for 15 mins or until the raw garlic smell disappears from the puree.I did not add any water at all,as mushrooms themselves ooze out lots of water.If you feel your mixture is very dry add 1/8 cup of the saved liquid.
13.Add the heavy cream and sour cream and cook for another 5 minutes.
14.Switch off the flame and remove the vessel.
