Casseroles have a special appeal, any day! Spinach is rich in vitamin A and tomatoes in folic acid. Together they make a healthy treat for your skin and eyes.
This casserole is also a visual treat for the eyes. It looks colourful and appetizing. Before serving it ensure that you bake it for a few minutes. Also ensure that you do not overcook the spinach else it turns dark green in colour.
- Heat a non-stick pan on a medium flame and when hot, add the onions and dry roast for about 30 seconds.
