    spinach dishes to try this winter

    Spinach is a seasonal vegetable mostly consumed in winter in India. The leading producing states of the leafy bunches are Karnataka, Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Andra Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Telangana, West Bengal and Maharashtra. 

    It is a low-calorie vegetable packed with nutrients that help to keep the body healthy. It boosts hydration, cuts the risks of anaemia because it is a rich source of iron, helps in the development of the baby, strengthens the immune system, combats free radicals and adds nutrients to the eyes. 

    If a vegetable has so many benefits, why wait to add it to your diet? Here is a list of spinach savouries you must try at home, especially in the winter season.
