Green Spinach/Pacha Cheera Thoran is a very nutritious and healthy Vegetarian dish. You can cook red spinach also in the same way which will also taste awesome.


  • Green spinach chopped - 250 grams
  • Fresh coconut grated - 1/4 cup
  • Shallots finely chopped - 10
  • Red chilly flakes - 1 tbsp
  • Mustard seeds - 1/4 tea spoon
  • Salt to taste
  • Water - 3 spoons


Step 1

Heat oil in a pan and splutter mustard.

Step 2

Add shallots and sauté.

Step 3

Then add coconut and chilli flakes and sauté for 1 minute.

Step 4

Add spinach and water to this and cook for 5 minutes with lids closed. Do not over cook as this will spoil the color and nutrition of spinach.

Step 5

After 5 minutes open the lid and evaporate any left over water so that spinach is not soggy. Switch of the flame. Add a teaspoon of coconut oil after the flame is switched off to add special flavor to Cheera Thoran.
