Fish with palak? .....not kidding..it's delicious!

Palak and fish- lovely combination!
This weekend was Easter and I was wondering what to cook for my kids especially with fish and make the lunch table a bit more exciting. Tilapia fillet is common here and my creative mind signaled  me to combine with freshly bought palak leaves. For some time I thought , it should not go crazy but a little later the dish was awesome and the kids enjoyed with slurps. Believe it will be worth to share with my food lover friends.

Serves: 3-4 persons

Ingredients:
1.  2 bunches of palak,
2. 1 teaspoon of ginger garlic,
3. 1 kg of tilapia fillets chopped into smaller pieces,
4. 1 teaspoon of salt,
5. 1/2  teaspoon of turmeric powder,
6. 1/3 cup of green peas,
7. 1 teaspoon of cumin,
8.1  teaspoon of coriander powder,
9. 1/2 teaspoon of red chili powder.
10. 2 medium sized onions chopped.

Procedure:
1.
Cook the fish




Heat oil and then add the chopped fish fillets. Add salt and turmeric powder to it. Cook for some time till it becomes nicely fried and changes color.

2. 
Cook the veggies
Heat oil and add the ginger garlic paste, onions, cumin and coriander powder to it. Saute well and then add the blanched palak leaves. Add green peas and then again stir so that the contents mix well. The palak will release water.

3.
Mix the content and cook till




Now add the cooked fish and then mix the content nicely.

Remove and then serve with roti/chapati/rice as per your taste demands. Addition of lemon juice while serving will even enhance the taste.
