Turn off the heat and take the roasted Mangodis out in a bowl. Coarsely crush some of the Mangodis, and keep 10-12 Mangodis intact. Once done, put the crushed and uncrushed Mangodis back in the cooker.

Turn off the flame and wait for the cooker’s pressure to settle. Meanwhile, prepare masala for sabzi. Take a pan and add 2 tbsp of oil to it.

In the hot oil, add ½ tsp of cumin seed, ½ pinch of Hing, ¼ tsp of turmeric powder, 1 tsp of coriander powder, 1 tbsp of Kasuri Methi (after crushing it with hands), tomato-ginger paste (2-tomatoes, 2-green chilies, ½ inch ginger baton), and ½ tsp of Kashmiri red chili.

Now, fry the masala till the oil separates. Keep the flame medium. The oil started to separate from the masala. Now, add fresh Malai to the masala and fry it again. Malai will enhance the gravy taste.

Tips: If you want, after frying Hing and jeera, add finely chopped onion and 5-6 chopped garlic cloves and fry till pinkish.

Alternative: You can add cream or butter instead of Malai.

Once the masala starts releasing oil, pour water in the pan. Add 250 grams of finely chopped Spinach. We thoroughly washed and dried the Spinach.

Add ¼ tsp of salt and roast the palak together with the masala. Once well-roasted, add ½ cup of water to the pan. Cover and cook the Sabzi for 5 minutes.
