    Pureeing the spinach to get all that green goodness is a fabulous idea. I add chopped spinach to the pasta at times, but never thought about pureeing it. You are one smart mommy!

    Thanks dear..

    How do you serve Indian food at home? What other things should be served on the table if I want chicken thoran as main dish? soup? raita? salad? rice? naan? Thanks for your time!!!

    chicken thoran is mainly served with rice and some kind of gravy based dishes or yogurt. You can serve soup or naan along with it,if you wish..
    Thanks Helen

    Oh nice healthy dish….

    Just for info about cuttlefish..Cuttlefish is not a fish, like the name suggest. It’s Like the squid or the octopus. If you like’s almost similar in taste.

    Ooh..ok,thanks Praveena…i love squid…so this is on my side too…:))

    I tried this recipe. My picky eater(my son) didn’t quite enjoy it as he suspected it’s store-bought pesto sauce as soon as he noticed the green color……so even before tasting he started saying “no, green sauce vendaa”….but I Loved it…it’s home-made, healthy and it’s easy to prepare … thanks..I’ll be preparing it again for me for sure….:))

    ayyo..thats son loves that green color..:).anyway happy to hear that u liked it…
