Tambli/Tambuli(yogurt curry) is one of the most commonly prepared curry in every brahmin household specially in many regions of Karnataka. Today I will share the recipe of baby spinach tambli. I have already shared similar recipe palak tambli,ie yogurt based curry using Indian spinach in my earlier post. 
 Blend of coconut, sauteed baby spinach with roasted cumin seeds, roasted back pepper corns and curd makes this dish very healthy & refreshing. Its kids friendly too. 
  Serve this fresh baby spinach tambli with warm rice and moru molaga/shandage munanchi/Majjige Menasu/Sundried buttermilk chilies.Without wasting any time, let me jump into the detailed recipe.


Ingredients :


two handful of cleaned fresh baby spinach (hold tightly and measure)

1 tsp of jeera/cumin seeds
1 tsp of ghee
6-7 black pepper corns
1 Green chilly (optional)
