ABOUT Spinach Prawns Curry RECIPE

This is a simple spinach curry to be had as a side dish with either rice or chapattis. I added some prawns to go with it and to enhance the flavour. It is purely optional and can be omitted. But it adds a punch to the same old boring spinach curry. I gave a tempering of panch phoron in mustard oil along with a little bit of asafoetida. I finished it of with the addition of kasundi / Bengali mustard paste.
