JhatPat Palak #sikandalouscuisine

A rustic dish , kept simple the flavors come through beautifully .

300-350 Grams/ 1 Large Bunch Palak - Coarsely chopped.
2-3 Broken Dried Red Chilies.
1 Teaspoon Sarson / Mustard Seeds .
1 Teaspoons Chopped Garlic.
1 Teaspoon Minced Ginger.
A Pinch of Haldi.
A Pinch of Hing.
Oil - I used Mustard Oil.

1. In boiling water add  1/2 teaspoon sugar , blanch palak not more than 30 seconds , then plunge into an ice water bath to prevent further cooking .Sugar in boiling water helps greens retain their color. When cool , squeeze palak of ALL water - Set aside.

2. Heat oil , add mustard seeds , dried red chilies and hing , then tip in ginger garlic - allow both to just soften , not color . Now add haldi and then palak with salt.

3. Raise heat to maximum and saute palak 3-4 minutes to coat with masala , lower heat and cook covered for just 2 minutes. You arent looking for some mash type of palak !
