This is one my favourite and authentic traditional konkani item known as 'AMBATTI'. This is prepared only when therez red spinach available. I feel the taste of red one is much more tastier than green. hehehe. This dish enhance the flavour of curd along with the grounded coconut mixture with mild spice. I am sure ur all gonna love this.


1 Bunch Red spinach.

1/2 Cup Grated coconut.

1 Dried Red chilli.

1/2 tsp Turmeric Pd.

1/2 Cup Curd.

1 tsp Mustard seeds.

1/2 tsp Jeera.

1 tsp Oil.

Few Curry leaf.

Salt to taste.


Clean the spinach Chop them finely.

Heat oil in a pan. Season them with mustard seeds, jeera, curry leaf and add spinach with salt and let it cook for a min. Meanwhile grind the coconut with turmeric pd and red chilli adding enough water.

When the spinach is cooked, add the coconut mixture and bring them to boil. Remove from flame and lastly add curd and stir.

Serve hot with rice.
