Spinach Mushroom side dish – A tasty combination!

Spinach Mushroom Recipe: Of late my postings on Sarah’s Kitchen have reduced drastically. Trying to resolve the technical issue with my laptop, I just got lucky that it’s waking up once in a while now. I do prefer to replace it sooner and workout a backup plan as well. Meanwhile, seizing this golden opportunity, I’m posting an interesting recipe with an interesting combination of spinach and mushroom.

In Mumbai, amchur powder and garam masala are two very famous ingredients that you could find in almost all dishes. I have used them in my preparation. In South India, we use garam masala mostly for non-veg preparation. And instead of amchur powder, we use lime juice. So, those of you who don’t have access to amchur powder, you could sprinkle lime juice over the dish towards the end.
