Spinach Surprise : Step by Step Recipe

If there is one magazine I read with alarming regularity its Good Housekeeping, just love it…. So this month when the newspaper walla delivered the magazine and I started flipping through it I found that there are some lovely Microwave recipes in that and when I am hosting MEC this month, this couldn’t have made me happier isn’t it 😀

all the recipes were lovely but the two that specially caught my eye were Spinach Surprise and Fish in Lemon Butter, I didn’t have fish fillets at home so I decided to make Spinach one but I am sure I will try the fish too


What I used

How I made it

Put oil in mustard seeds and crushed garlic in a microwave safe bowl and microwave on high for 2 minutes

Add the chopped onions and microwave on high for another 3 minutes or till the onions are slightly pink

Add the spinach puree to the above bowl

and microwave on high for 2 minutes till its just a bit cooked

Keep this aside for cooling and in the meanwhile whisk together eggs, milk, besan and salt

Add the kasuri methi and green chillies and give it a little whisk

Add the cooled spinach mixture and fold gently

Pour in microwave safe utensils… its better to pour in small individual moulds… I used silicon muffin moulds and mini muffin moulds

Microwave on medium power till a skewer comes out clean. Mine muffins took about 8 mins and the mini ones about 5

We in the house loved them… and I think the mini ones are just perfect for kids even as cocktail snacks

And but ofcourse I am sending this to the event I am hosting myself this month…. MEC by Srivalli themed on Savory Snacks
