How to make Palak Ki Kadhi in Microwave
emove stalk from spinach and use leaves. Also, remove weeds and clean. Thoroughly wash the leaves twice with water, place in sieve or plate diagonally so that excess water drains out.
After this, finely chop the spinach leaves.
Whisk the curd:
Take a microwave safe bowl and place finely chopped spinach leaves into it. Now add 1/4 cup water into it and place the bowl in microwave. Cook the spinach on maximum temperature for 2 minutes. Meanwhile prepare batter from gram flour.

After 2 minutes, take out bowl with spinach from microwave and place the bowl with gram flour batter into it. Cook the batter for 3 minutes on maximum temperature. Stir the kadhi nicely and cook for another 3 minutes. After six minutes take out the bowl and add salt, green chilly and boiled spinach. Now cook for 2+2 .i.e 4 more minutes.
Spinach kadhi is now ready, make tadka for it now. Prepare tadka on flame. For this take small pan and add oil into it. When oil is sufficiently hot, add cumin seeds and asafoetida. Turn off the flame and add red chilly powder in pan. Pour the tadka over kadhi and mix. Also add green coriander.
If you prefer eating bit tarty kadhi then place the curd outside in a room and use in morning for making kadhi. With this curd will turn sour and kadhi will also get tarty in flavor.
