1 pound (10oz.) fresh spinach or 1pkg frozen leaf cut spinach
1/8 cup water
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1 tsp. cumin seeds
1 dried red chili pepper
1 & 1/2 tsp. rice flour, bleached flour, or corn starch

Cook spinach with a little boiled water and salt until the spinach gets tender.
Put the cooked spinach into the blender and chop or grind for a few second. Take the spinach out and set it aside.
Put water, shredded coconut, cumin seeds, and dried red chili pepper into the blender and blend into a fine paste.
Put the spinach and the paste above in a pan with a little water and warm with medium heat.
Add salt if you need, and add rice flour to thicken the spinach.
For tempering, heat oil in a heavy sauce pan, add the mustard seeds and urad daal. When the mustard seeds pop, add this mixture in the spinach.
