Simple Spinach Mash:   (Keerai Masiyal)

I am sharing today is Keerai Masiyal or very simple mashed spinach is easy to prepare & healthy to eat recipe. This version makes perfect for  Mulai Keerai (Amaranth Leaves), which is rich in nutritional values, twenty times more than in other vegetables. It is a valuable source of nutrients, rich in iron, calcium, vit A, anti oxidants and veg proteins. Also this leaves are believed to keep blood sugar levels low.
If we make a habit of eating Keerai, atleast twice a week, it keeps us fit n healthy.
Keerai Masiyal makes an excellent combination with white steamed hot rice and a tsp of ghee. The taste is just out of the world…Here is my recipe for healthy n tasty dish…:)
