Spinach Mushroom Dry Curry

There is a big story behind the invention of this dish. We were extremely bored and wanted to do something to while away time..I'm a fan of the food network's show "CHOPPED". In the show the chef's would be given a basket full of secret ingredients and will need to prepare a appetizer, entree and dessert.The ingredients would have no connection but it needs to be blended together to give a good taste.So we thought we will do something like that..We wanted to use the mushrooms and greens before the DOE and kept them as the secret ingredients. Final outcome was yummy and tasted great with rasam rice.Ofcourse we did not get chopped...

Think of SPINACH there comes POPEYE to my mind.loved the cartoon.

 Spinach has a high nutritional value and is extremely rich in antioxidants, especially when fresh, steamed, or quickly boiled.  It is a rich source of vitamin A, C, E, K, magnesium manganese, folate, iron, vitamin B2, calcium, potassium, vitamin B6, copper, protein, phosphorus, zinc, niacin, selenium and omega-3 fatty   acids. No wonder Popeye got so much energy after eating SPINACH !!!!!!!!!
