When the oil is hot, add the palak and 1tsp ofsalt.
The palak will start losing water and reduce in quantity.

Once the water evaporates, conitue to stir fry for a while till the palak acquires a very deep green colour.
Add the tumeric, chilli, jeera and dhania powders and mix well.
Add the green chillies and tomatoes and continue to cook on a low flame. Add 2-3 tbsp more of oil and stir.
