Keerai Sadam | Spinach Rice

Keerai Sadam
Spinach is rich in nutrients. Green leaves are always rich in iron, folic acid and calcium. This green leafy vegetable is known as pasalai keerai in tamil. Spinach Rice is a easy quick Lunch box recipe that can be prepared with left over rice. I have used basmati rice for Spinach Rice preparation. Normal rice can also be used for this keerai sadam. Please check below for step by step instructions and pictures for preparing South Indian Keerai Sadam | Spinach Rice.
