When I was a child I would never touch Spinach. With a lot of hard work done by my mom on me, I started eating it and now I love it :-)
My husband and I tried a curry similar to this one in an Indian restaurant in Frankfurt, and loved it. The very next day, I tried a variation on the curry at home and since then it features quite regularly on our dining table. Its a very simple and easy to make dish and delicious too.
