Bhaji per edu/ Spincah eggs

Eggs on Spinach
Bhaji per Eeda

3 tbsp oil
3 large onions, finely chopped
1 tsp ground garlic
1 tsp ground ginger
¾ kg spinach leaves
Optionally add 4 very small bunches or 1 large bunch fenugreek leaves
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp sugar
6-8 eggs (at room temperature)

Heat the oil in a large fry pan or a 12” pan with 2” high sides. Fry 2/3rd of the onions until light golden brown. Add in the ginger and garlic and cook for one more minute. Now add in the spinach and the fenugreek leaves, the remaining raw onion, salt and sugar. Mix well and cook and a medium flame, mixing occasionally until the spinach is well cooked and all the liquid is absorbed. Just before serving, heat the spinach well, and crack the eggs on it. Cover until the eggs are cooked.

To make egg florentine prepare the spinach, top with bechamel sauce and then crack whole eggs.

In a large pot make the bechamel sauce  by mixing together,

Melt 4 tbsp salted butter 
add 4 tbsp plain flour
Make a roux, and add
2 cups whole milk
Keep stirring with a whisk to keep it smooth and bring it to a boil till thickens.
Add to this
Seasoning; salt and mixed peppercorns freshly cracked. Optionally freshly grated nutmeg can be added.


You may simply use 2 boxes of frozen spinach instead of the fresh spinach and fenugreek/methi leaves.
