This one serves as food not just to the starving stomach, but as food for thought as well – as you can experiment by using this interesting spinach filling in varied ways! The sesame adds not just crunch but a liberal quota of iron as well to this interesting stuffing of spinach sautéed with garlic and a little oil.

Spinach adds to the health factor too – it is rich in vitamin A and folic acid. Vitamin A is a natural antioxidant. (remember to sauté the spinach on a high flame to retain its colour and nutrients. ) you could use this filling to make a sandwich, or as a topping over cooked kodri , simply have it as it is or stuff it in crepes like I did!
