Kajal said...

Hi Trupti,

Thanks for Lovely words. If you want green color as it is then don’t too much cook and also don’t cover the pan when you cook the spinach then color is remaining as it is.

Kajal said...

Thanks Jyothi for pretty words.
Have a great day to see your comment.

Kajal said...

Hi Coffee,

Thanks for kind words.
When you crush the spinach then it is not good in flavor.....when you add lemon and sugar then it’s taste better otherwise you use Amchur powder or ready made Punjabi masala as you like.:)

Kajal said...

Hi Ushaprashanth,

Thanks for lovely words.

Kajal said...

Hi Asha,

Thanks for nice words. For color you don’t cook more than 2-3 minutes after you add spinach and don’t cover with dish when you cook spinach curry then color is as it is.:)

Kajal said...
