Hope my US friends are safe and out of danger from 'Sandy'.If 'Irene' was a trailor,'Sandy' was the real movie.Though we were in the sandy track initially but then there was no major mishaps here.Coming back to today's recipe is one which was a trial n error and was successful.The combination of paneer, moong sprouts and spinach leaves.When you have smaller quantities of any of your veggies,What do you do? I know,many of you might be combining it with some other vegetable and prepare an interesting dish.So,does is the invention of this recipe.And I feel that's the best way to use it up too rather than wasting,ryt ? This is a very healthy,nutritious and the delicious stir fry.Hope u'll give this a try sometimes & enjoy!!

* Add salt little by little as spinach leaves gets wilted and reduced to half.
* Adding coconut is strictly optional as there is no much flavor of that.I just added to give it a kerala touch.
