This is a very healthy,tasty and simple sambhar like dish.My mom usually makes this often and i like this a lot.So i made it today for the first time.My inlaws liked it a lot and i decided to share with you all.

Spinach--------------2 cups
Tamrind water--------4 cups
sambhar powder-------2 spoons
Mustard--------------1/2 spoon

Cook the spinach with little salt.
After the spinach is cooked smash it lightly and add tamrind water.
Add little turmeric powder,salt and asafoetida and allow it boil.
Then add the sambar powder and allow it to boil.
When it is almost cooked ,fry the mustard and redchili and add it along with the sambar.

If required you can also add little cooked toor dal for extra taste.

I am sending this to sangeeth's Eat healthy--calcium rich contest.Spinach is very rich in calcium.I am so happy in participating in healthy diet events.
