Palak Sprouts Peas Medley


Where do Popeye, the sailor man gets instant muscles, power from? Spinach! Everyone knows the leafy greens are good for us. A super food it is, loaded with minerals, vitamins, it is just as healthy as you suspect it to be. It really is a versatile food. While some might not like it but there are number of ways to prepare that it works for them.



Number of combinations makes great food. Few days back I tried my luck by combining Spinach and sprouts, two superfoods together. And it turned out awesome. Sprouts are another marvel food and I have so many varities under my cap, be it Oats sprouts tikki , Sprouts chaat, or even parathes and Chilaas, I have always loved them but little steamed.

This recipe is my own creation and believe me you will love it.  Give it a try.
