Usha is a wonderful blogger with a lot of healthy recipes, I really wanted to try out her Barley recipes, I have tried some of her dishes and enjoyed it too.., I had posted one already, sometimes my photos are so ugly I don’t like to post them, well I couldn’t miss out on this as I follow her blog ardently and she is such a sweet person who never forgets to write to me and comment in my blog!, even though I don’t comment in hers :).
I am always short of time, but I love to try out different recipes from different bloggers, My new way of book marking is now, writing down in a book all the recipes I love to try out. These days with kids hols computer is become a gadget which I see seldom!, When I keep asking for it and they being glued to it and lost in their own world never here a thing I say, I give up.
Coming back to the recipe, from few days I am enjoying a lot of Green leaves from my garden and from the shop which I bought in loads, I have yet to post some of the recipes I have tried out, Spinach was in abundant as my friend got me some from London. I was looking for something which I have never tried out, as I wanted to participate in T & T I first visited VegInspiration, so here is my Inspired recipe…..
PULI ITTA KEERAI / TAMARIND FLAVOURED SPINACH
2 Bunch of Spinach
Salt as required
2 flakes of Tamarind
1/2 cup water
2 Green chillies
1 Tsp of oil
1/2 tsp of Mustard seeds
1 tsp of channa dal
1 tsp of Urad dal
1 or 2 Dry Red Chillies
A pinch of Asafoetida
Take a heavy bottomed vessel and cup spinach, Tamarind and Green chillies in 1/2 cup water until well done, put off the stove and allow it to cool, Once it is cooled puree them all together into a nice paste.
Take a wok and heat oil then add one by one everything under seasoning, fry them until a nice aroma comes out, add this to pureed spinach mix well and serve.
Usha suggests this goes well with Poricha Kozhumbu, I served it with Poricha Rasam, as she says it goes well with it because we do not use Tamarind to this rasam and it is a great combination.
Adjust the spices as per your taste, and it is quite a yummy dish, I ate this next day with Chapatis and it was really good., Thanks for the recipe Usha.
This is an other recipe which I had tried out from Usha’s blog some time back… try this out too and enjoy as I did..
This was the softest Pulkas I ever made, I really enjoyed, I just tweaked it a little bit, she used spinach and Avocado both but I used only Avocado with this check out this link to get the recipe.

This is an other one which I tried, as my hubby loves More kozhambu, I really wanted to try this out, and I had book marked, I have used yoghurt and Tomatoes in my pacchadis. So, I made her version of Mor Kozhumbu with Tomatoes it was quite nice, Here is my post for that recipe……
