Palak Sausage Gravy

I like that palak panner dish. As you know its a very healthy dish. But i dont like to eat the panneer pieces in that. So i tried with vienna sausage. It worked and it taste good too. So non veg lovers can definitely give a try. Specially those who dont like panneer like us will like this dish. Healthy and simple!!!!.

You will need:

  • 1 can vienna sausage
  • 1 bunch spinach/palak
  • 2 green chillies
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tsp amchoor powder or tamarind paste
  • 5 cloves of garlic (chopped)
  • 1 inch ginger (chopped)
  • 1 tsp mustard seeds
  • ½ tsp cumin seeds
  • 2 dry red chillies
  • ¼ cup onion (finely chopped)
  • 1 string curry leaves
  • salt for taste
  • oil for tempering

Step 1:

Heat water in pan and add garlic and ginger to it. Allow it to boil for few minutes. then add chopped spinach and green chillies into it . Let it cook for few more minutes till the spinach is fully cooked.

Step 2:

After the spinach mixture is fully cooked allow it to cool for some time. In the mean time cut the canned sausage into small chunks like the way we do for panneer/tofu.

Step 3:

Grind the spinach mixture to a fine paste. Dont add any water to it. If you add water the final product will turn very watery.

Step 4:

Heat a non stick pan mediun high. Add 2 tbsp oil, when its hot add mustard seeds, cumin seeds, onion one by one. When the onion turns translucent add curry leaves and dry red chillies to it. Now add the sausage chunks and saute for few seconds. Add the spinach mixture to it. Finally add tamarind paste / amchoor(mango) powder and salt depending on our taste.


Can substitute tamarind paste with sour cream too.
