1 ½ Tsp Ginger, chopped

2 Fresh Red Chillies, chopped
3 Tbsp Soy Sauce

How to Make:
In a large bowl, mix together spinach and cornflour. Keep aside.
Heat oil over high heat for deep frying in a wok.
Add a handful of the coated spinach into the hot oil and flash fry for a minute while stirring in between to avoid sticking. Remove the crispy spinach in a bowl and repeat with remaining spinach.
Heat 1 ½ tsp oil in a deep pan over medium heat and add ginger, garlic and red chillies. Saute for a minute and add soy sauce along with vinegar. Mix again.
Add the fried spinach to the pan and toss gently. Add sesame seeds and toss again.
Once cooked, remove from heat, transfer to a serving bowl, garnish with more sesame seeds and serve warm.
