Mixed Vegetables in Spinach Gravy

 Spinach was our family’s favorite. I will  always try to make dishes from spinach as  to use the leaves from our garden. When I see this recipe in her space , I immediately bookmarked it .

It was a easy , healthy and colorful gravy. We had this gravy with chapati and it was a excellent combination.
 This gravy will be best to make kids have the greens.

Onion – 1
Tomato – 3
Red chilly – 4

Boil the chopped vegetables in water along with the salt and sugar to retain its color.
