Ingredients:

Fresh Spinach 500g (which is about 2 big bunches I think)
Tofu - 1 packet
Onion - 1 medium size
Tomato - 1 medium size
Red Chilli powder - enough to suite your own taste
Turmeric - 1 pinch
Salt - again enough to suit your own taste
Cumin seeds - 1 pinch
Garlic - 2 flakes(optional)
Ginger - 1 small piece (optional)
Oil - 2 tablespoons


Method:

Wash the Spinach thoroughly and add garlic and ginger then let it steam until its quite soft/limp.

Cool it and then grind to a fine paste along with the tomato.

Heat oil in a pan and add cumin seeds. When its done, quickly add slices onions, fry until they turn golden brown.

Add little turmeric powder, chilli powder and salt and then add the spinach-tomato paste. Add little water to give it a curry consistency. Let it cook for sometime.

Cut the Tofu into small square pieces and finally add to the above prepared curry. Let it simmer for a while and enjoy the taste

To pretty it up a bit and make it even yummier, you can decorate it with coriander/mint leaves, or with some chopped roasted cashews.
