Wash and boil spinach in water and allow it to cool. Squeeze out the excess water and cut it coarsely.
Dice cottage cheese into rectangular pieces and fry them till golden brown. Soak them in water so that turn soft.
Heat oil in the pan add cumin seeds, garlic & onion; when the onion starts getting transparent add tomato, after 5 minutes add chopped spinach, turmeric powder and red chili powder.
Saute and add salt & fennel seeds powder.
Drain the water from the soaked cottage cheese and add to the spinach.
Saute for sometime and serve hot.
enjoy with naan or roti

Please note: frying cottage cheese is optional, I did not fry the cottage cheese, though it turned out as tastier and yummy


  1. Will try this out next time and let you know how it turns out. One suggestion - Try roasting hand full of fresh coriander along with onion/garlic in the oil next time. I saute ginger, garlic, onion, green chillies, jeera and corainder in oil,grind it and then add palak to it. Comes out very yummy.
