    I am so glad I raised my hands & asked and even gladder that you chose to reply in thorough detail. I had no clue onion and tomatoes could be made in the microwave - that's usually one of the most time consuming steps in the Indian curry - "sautee onion and tomatoes till oil separates/or it somewhat caramelizes". Phew and it takes forever!


    :kissingclosed::kissingclosed: You're most welcome. I should pass on the credit to my regular food blogging gurus: Rak's kitchen, Paddu's kitchen, Sailu's kitchen, Yummy Tummy Arti and Solai's true chettinad Kitchen. I am sure I learnt it from one of them. None of their recipes have failed me till now.

    whoa - that truly is a "green" kitchen operation you have there!! :clap2: I feel bad for asking you question after question. But since you make such versatile use of the spinach puree - do you puree in bulk and freeze this (also like the pesto you've mentioned)? Or do you take out mixie, puree in small batches and hand wash mixie :eek: - after each pureeing session?

    Same like aloo poha, "no water-cooking". instead of sauteed aloo, grated fresh carrots and fresh coconut.

    I use frozen spinach, so it’s a pretty quick process to make the purée in the magic bullet. I also add yogurt to the purée in some recipes , so it’s not possible to freeze.
    The downside is my kids are used to green dosa’s / paratha’s and think that is the norm. They have asked why the dosa is not green at their grandparents house. :facepalm:

    One dosa that is green without any spinach is the traditional peserattu dosa. Very common in Andhra homes.
    The green gram makes it green without the addition of spinach.
