SINDHI SAI BHAAJI (DESI STYLE SPINACH FROM SINDH)

 

Please excuset he bad pic and just go for the recipe. This is sindhi style spinach and fenugreek rice (methi rice) which goes together in Sindhi food. I have been asked for this recipe and did not have it! Shame on me being sindhi and this being such a staple food in our homes.. Well here it is…its a copy and paste recipe from a long time ago .. but nevertheless a good genuine recipe..Thanks to my sister Renu..
