Beans with Spinach Recipe

Beans with Spinach Recipe

Just before her second birthday Achala was diagnosed anemic due to iron deficiency. It is quite difficult to make her eat vegetables. Most of  the times Achala eats only roti (Indian bread) and only chawal (steamed rice) without any dal (pulses) or sabji (vegetable dish). She is very choosy about what to eat. So I mix two or three vegetables to make a dish (which I think she will eat). In this dish I have used spinach and okra (ladyfinger) with french beans
