This leafy green has been around since Persian times in what is present day Iran and its neighbouring countries. From there it reached India and then to the world. Spinach is rich in so many nutrients, especially Vitamins K, A and iron, and eating it daily provides 20% of your daily nutritional requirement. It can be cultivated almost throughout the year is ready to harvest in about a month from sowing. For best results, cut off leaves that are 3-4 inches long. This results in increased foliage in the second round. Our favourite way of eating spinach is in a delicious aloo palak sabzi with phulkas; what's yours?
