2 cups pureed spinach (recipe given on this site)
2 cups finely chopped fenugreek leaves
1 cup freshly pureed tomato
1/2 cup finely chopped coriander leaves
1 cup finely chopped spring onions
1 tablespoon garlic crushed
2 large onions finely chopped
1 teaspoon coriander powder
1 " cumin powder
1 " turmeric "
1 teaspoon red chilli powder
1/2 teaspoon pepper powder/garam masala/cardamom & nutmeg
salt to taste
1 tablespoon cream
1 tablespoon oil / 1 tablespoon clarified butter

First of all let me explain the concept of cutting things fine. It is simply to eliminate cooking time. When food is cooked for a lesser time less nutrients are lost. You therefore benefit from the extra trouble taken to chop things fine.
Warm the fats together and fry the onions first. When they start to turn golden add the spring onions. When they turn translucent add the crushed garlic. Next add the turmeric, coriander, cumin, red chilli powder, pepper, salt by one giving a quick stir between each addition. Add the chopped fenugreek leaves. After a few minutes of cooking add the tomato puree and the pureed spinach. Cover and cook for another five minutes. Sprinkle the garam masala powder and cardamom /nutmeg powder and put of the fire. Beat the cream and add.
Garam masala as well as cardamom/nutmeg are very important to include in your daily diet as they play a role in looking after your respiratory tract. They help to keep mucus formation to a minimum.
