Spinach – Tomato Curry

Spinach – Tomato Curry
Yummy Combo of Spinach and Tomato

I usually add Spinach to dal which makes it a very delicious side dish. Sometimes I also make simple curry with the combo of spinach and tomato. This is a very quick dish with very little work and tastes super delicious. 

Here is the simple recipe with simple ingredients:

Spinach – Tomato Curry

  • 5 cups Spinach leaves, chopped
  • 2 cups Tomato, chopped (approx. 2 medium)
  • 4 Green chilies, chopped
  • A pinch of Turmeric
  • Salt
For Seasoning/Tempering:
  • 1 tsp Oil
  • ½ tsp Mustard Seeds
  • ¼ tsp Cumin Seeds
  • ½ tsp Bengal Gram (పచ్చి శనగపప్పు, Chana Dal)
  • ½ tsp Black Gram (మినప్పప్పు, Urad Dal)
  • Few Curry Leaves
  • 2 broken red Chilies
  1. Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds. When they pop, add cumin seeds + chana dal + urad dal + red chilies + curry leaves and sauté well.
  2. Then add green chilies and allow it to cook. Then add spinach + turmeric and stir well and leave on low flame for some time.
  3. When it becomes cooked, add tomato + salt and mix well. Cover and allow the curry to cook well for some time.
  4. When spinach and tomato becomes soft and gets cooked, turn off the flame and transfer the curry to a serving bowl.
  5. Enjoy this simple and delicious curry with rice as well as chapathis.
  6. Yummy!!

It really taste good..but people say that we are not supposed to eat tomato and spinach together as they may from stones in the kidney..Just an advice..:)

Wow, I never heard of this before. I always combine spinach and tomato. I searched for answers about this, but found none. I feel it is just a misunderstanding. Thanks for your advice though :)

I heard about not combining spinach and cucumber together as it will destroy the vitamin C absorption as spinach contains a higher level of Vitamin C.
