Red spinach/Keerai - 1 bunch
Water - 1/4 cup
Salt - to taste
Oil - 1 tsp
Urad dal - 1 tsp
Rice - 1 tsp
Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
Red chilli(broken) - 1-2

Finely chop the spinach and thin stems. Discard the thick stems.
In a heavy bottom pan, place the chopped spinach leaves with water. Turn on the heat to med-high and it would take 5-7 mins for the leaves to wilt and release water.
Keep mashing the spinach with a heavy spoon. Once fully cook, remove from heat and continue to mash until creamy.Add salt to taste. DONT blend the mixture and it would ruin the taste and entire thing would taste like a spinach puree.
In another skillet, add oil and temper rice,urad dal,red chilli and mustard seeds.
Add tempering to mashed spinach and cook the mixture for 3-4 mins in low heat.
Serve hot with rice.
