Spinach(palak) and chickpea flour (besan)dry curry

          I have had this or atleast something similar to this at a friend's place back in India a couple of years ago. I bought a spinach to make a salad with it for dinner. But ended up making this one as I really felt like having something spicy along with my chapatis that day. I am glad I remembered this recipe as we all loved it and went very well with chapatis and dal. I think I am going to make this often.
